I decided to celebrate my last full day in Korea by eating one of the strangest “street treats” I’ve ever encountered. It’s called “Poo Dough” and is essentially a pancake on a stick, but—here’s the kicker—in the shape of a giant blob of poo. Ah, but that’s not all! Each poo dough is stuffed with Korean black bean paste to help emphasize . . . well, er . . . you get the point.
Trust me, this is not a case of cultural misinterpretation. The poo dough packaging makes it all explicitly clear . . .
My final word on the subject is that poo dough is delicious. In fact, I will confess I ate three of them.
