Where to Eat Korean Corn Dog in Vancouver

Korean corn dogs in Vancouver can be found on Jervis Street, Vaness Avenue, Robson Street, and Coquitlam areas. These businesses sell a wide variety of corn dogs, from traditional Korean style to mozzarella, potato, and many more.

So grab a napkin (or two) and join us on a culinary adventure through the world of Korean corn dogs!

But before we get to our list, let's explore how this iconic street dish won the hearts of both locals and visitors.

What are Korean Corn Dogs?

Corn dogs, otherwise known as "gamja hot dogs," are believed to have arrived on Korea's shores in the 1980s. They’re widely popular among both adults and children and have become one of the most beloved street foods in Korea.

They're referred to as "hasdogeu" in Korean, and their traditional form consists of a sausage or mozzarella cheese block on a stick covered in a sweet panko-coated batter and fried. 

Korean corn dogs evolved further throughout time, with sellers experimenting with different batters, fillings, and toppings. 

They're now stuffed with everything from hot dogs and sausages to squid and lobster and coated in everything from breadcrumbs to potato flakes.

If you're wondering how the Korean corn dog differs from the American corn dog, the main difference is in the batter.

American corn dogs are breaded with cornmeal, while Korean corn dogs are breaded with yeasted dough or rice flour. Corn dogs are also topped with sugar in Korea.
