WTF: Deep-fried squid on a stick
I remember as a kid watching Alien’s titular monster burst out of John Hurt’s stomach, and I nearly dying of fright. Little did I imagine that three decades later I’d be eating one of the damn things. The latest trending food chain to hit the streets is Ozzang, which will sell you a massive deep-fried squid on a stick like it’s the most normal thing in the world. Juicy and a little spicy, it tastes a lot better than it looks, though that may seem like faint praise. The extreme fritters franchise started out in department stores, but with stalls now popping up all over the city, including Hongdae and Noksapyeong, Ozzang can bring your horrifying snackfood nightmares to life in a Seoul neighborhood near you.
