Sweet and Nutty Korean Street Food

Hoddeok is a sweet, sugar and nut filled pancake that is a popular snack food sold on the streets of Korea. Hoddeok may have originated with Chinese merchants who immigrated to Korea in the late 1800's.
While ststiones in Korea, I would seek out the street carts with hoddeok whenever I visited one of the market areas, enjoying the hot, sweet, dripping pancakes.
