10 Best Incheon Chinatown Food (Street Food)

You might have heard of Incheon if you have come to Korea because it has the largest international airport in Korea. It has quite a lot of attractions, including many different islands, and one of them is Incheon Chinatown.

Incheon Chinatown is well-known for its various types of food including street food. I made a list of the food that I tried there. Enjoy πŸ™‚ Oh and the Korean version isΒ here.

 

Β 1. Mandu (λ§Œλ‘)

Incheon chinatown food 1

It is a must-try in Chinatown. You can find different styles of Mandu (Dumplings) like steamed, boiled, fried, etc. The interesting thing is that their dumplings have juice inside which makes the Mandu moist.

There are many Mandu restaurants but I recommend two. One is Wonbo (원보) and the other is DaDaBok (닀닀볡). I will attach the addresses below. Remember they are closed at around 7 pm.

Wonbo

Price: 6,000 KRW for a plate

Address: μΈμ²œκ΄‘μ—­μ‹œ 쀑ꡬ μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 48 (48, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

Phone: 032-773-7888

Dadabok

Price: 5,000 KRW for a plate

Address: μΈμ²œκ΄‘μ—­μ‹œ 쀑ꡬ μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 55번길 24 (24, China town-ro 55beon-gil, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

Phone: 032-765-9888

 

2. Hongdubyeong (홍두병)

Incheon chinatown food 3

Incheon chinatown food 4

It is a Chinese bread filled with either red bean paste, cream cheese, or mango creme. I got the cream cheese one and it is so delicious! The bread is so soft and warm. It is like a different version of Bungeoppang (λΆ•μ–΄λΉ΅; Korean fish-shaped pastry)

Price: 2,000 KRW for one

Address: μΈμ²œκ΄‘μ—­μ‹œ 쀑ꡬ μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 48 (48, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)/ right next to Wonbo the Mandu place.

Phone: 032-764-9977

 

3. Lamb skewers (μ–‘κΌ¬μΉ˜; Yang Ggochi)

Incheon chinatown food 7

Chinese enjoy eating lamb skewers with beer. You can easily see lamb skewer vendors in the street. They grill it for a minute or two and then serve you. You dip it into the salty magic powder and eat it. If you don’t cook lamb well, it smells, but these were well-cooked πŸ™‚

Price: 1,000 KRW for one

Address: μΈμ²œκ΄‘μ—­μ‹œ 쀑ꡬ μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 48 (48, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)/ Right next to Hongdubyeong I mentioned above.

 

4. Chibitco Yaki (μΉ˜λΉ—μ½”μ•Όν‚€)

Incheon chinatown food 18

Incheon chinatown food 8

It is more like Japanese food than Chinese. I would say that it is a bigger version of Tacoyaki (타코야킀; octopus balls). It has three types: octopus, bacon, and shrimp. I got a shrimp one. Between the two pieces of bread, it has shrimp, cabbage, and fried egg inside. Oh my goodness. The sauce and the ingredients go so well!

Price: 3,000 KRW for each / 8,000 KRW for all three

Address: Right next to the lamb skewer vendor I mentioned above.

 

5. Mooncake (월병; Wolbyeong)

I stayed in China for about 7 months for an internship, and one of my all time favorite Chinese food is mooncake. I just love the combination of sweet red bean paste and salty egg yolk. Incheon Chinatown also has many mooncake shops and street vendors and I recommend you to buy it in a shop, not from a street vendor.

I asked a street vendor if their mooncakes have egg yolk inside and he told me that I wouldn’t be able to find those here in Chinatown. Well, I found them in a mooncake shop. They have over 15 kinds of mooncakes.

It didn’t taste as good as the ones that I tried in China, but I was glad that I could eat mooncakes again in Korea. Original Chinese mooncakes are much more moist and the saltiness of the yolk is stronger.

Price: 3,500 KRW for one egg mooncake

Address: μΈμ²œκ΄‘μ—­μ‹œ 쀑ꡬ μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 44번길 26 μ€‘κ΅­μ œκ³Ό λ‹΄ (26, China town-ro 44beon-gil, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

Phone: 032-773-8807

 

6. Pineapple cake (νŽ‘λ¦¬μˆ˜; Feng-li-su)

Incheon chinatown food 14

It is Taiwanese pineapple cake. It is yellow and has a kind of pineapple jam inside. It tastes sweet πŸ™‚ I felt like the pineapple cakes that I tried before from Taiwan tasted better, but it could be just me.

Price: 1,500 KRW for one

Address: μΈμ²œκ΄‘μ—­μ‹œ 쀑ꡬ μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 44번길 26 μ€‘κ΅­μ œκ³Ό λ‹΄ (26, China town-ro 44beon-gil, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea) / The same place as the mooncake shop.

Phone: 032-773-8807

 

7. Fruit skewers (탕후루; Tanghulu)

Incheon chinatown food 20

These are fruit skewers coated with sugar syrup. One type is only strawberries and grapes and the other type is tomato, orange, and grapes. I recommend the first one πŸ™‚ It is sweet and it makes a good dessert.

Price: strawberry+grape – 2,000 KRW / the other type – 1,000 KRW

Address: It is a street vendor. Somewhere near the Hongdubyeong (the 2nd in this list) place.

 

8. Petit Waffle (쁘띠 μ™€ν”Œ)

Incheon chinatown food 24

Incheon chinatown food 25

Incheon chinatown food 26

It is a small bite-size waffle. Depending on the dipping, it has various types like cream+nutella, cream+bluberry jam, cream+cream cheese, etc. I got the nutella one. I wish the waffles would be a little more moist. You can share one with two or three people.

Price: 5,000 KRW for one

Address: 인천 μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 22 μ² νŒλ§Œλ‘μ™€ν”Œ (22, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

 

9. Egg tart (에그타λ₯΄νŠΈ)

Incheon chinatown food 23

The best egg tarts I have ever tried were from Hong Kong and Macau. But I found the same quality of egg tarts in the Incheon Chinatown food street. The pastry is amazing and the egg part is soft. Super delish πŸ™‚ You should try this!

Price: 2,000 KRW for one

Address: 인천 쀑ꡬ μ°¨μ΄λ‚˜νƒ€μš΄λ‘œ 28 담선생 (28, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

 

10. Cotton candy (μ†œμ‚¬νƒ•; Som Satang)

Incheon chinatown food 21

There are so many creative cotton candies like colorful flower cotton candy. Enjoy the sweets πŸ™‚

Price: around 2,000-3,000 KRW

Address: Right next to the Tanghulu (the 7th in the list)

    I visited China Town in 인천 only for Chinese restaurants. So I’ve not yet tried street foods at vendors. Seeing various types of street foods is interesting. Thank you:) Among the lists above, mooncake, red bean paste with an egg yolk, is the most impressive one; I like its pretty name and new combination. I will try it!
    (It is the by the way, did you eat all of the foods at a time?!!)

      I visited only two restaurants there but I wasn’t satisfied. I will visit and try again in different restaurants πŸ™‚ Yeah, mooncakes are amazing! Ah, I wish you could try original mooncakes from China. They are the best. Haha well, I tried the half of them at a time and the other half in the next day. I wanted to try everything but didn’t have room for those. So I’m planning to visit again soon!

    Ok, if I have a chance to go to China, I will try authentic one in China. Frankly, the chinese restaurants I visited in Incheon China town was not as satisfactory as I had expected. I rather like to visit μš©ν™”λ°˜μ  ,these days, located nearby λ™μΈμ²œ station. I enjoyed the foods much more.
    Ahaa, you looked around the street foods over two days. You know what? I had a few funny assumption; Is she food-fighter who posts food blogging? Just kidding. Don’t blame me.
    Well, Hope you enjoy your next expedition and keep it up on new page. God bless you☺
