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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and the Korean version isย here.


ย 1. Mandu (๋งŒ๋‘)

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 (์›๋ณด) and the other is DaDaBok (๋‹ค๋‹ค๋ณต). I will attach the addresses below. Remember they are closed at around 7 pm.


Price: 6,000 KRW for a plate

Address: ์ธ์ฒœ๊ด‘์—ญ์‹œ ์ค‘๊ตฌ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 48 (48, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

Phone: 032-773-7888


Price: 5,000 KRW for a plate

Address: ์ธ์ฒœ๊ด‘์—ญ์‹œ ์ค‘๊ตฌ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 55๋ฒˆ๊ธธ 24 (24, China town-ro 55beon-gil, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

Phone: 032-765-9888


2. Hongdubyeong (ํ™๋‘๋ณ‘)

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 (๋ถ•์–ด๋นต; Korean fish-shaped pastry)

Price: 2,000 KRW for one

Address: ์ธ์ฒœ๊ด‘์—ญ์‹œ ์ค‘๊ตฌ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 48 (48, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)/ right next to Wonbo the Mandu place.

Phone: 032-764-9977


3. Lamb skewers (์–‘๊ผฌ์น˜; 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Price: 1,000 KRW for one

Address: ์ธ์ฒœ๊ด‘์—ญ์‹œ ์ค‘๊ตฌ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 48 (48, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)/ Right next to Hongdubyeong I mentioned above.


4. Chibitco Yaki (์น˜๋น—์ฝ”์•ผํ‚ค)

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 (ํƒ€์ฝ”์•ผํ‚ค; 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 (์›”๋ณ‘; Wolbyeong)

Incheon chinatown food 13

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: ์ธ์ฒœ๊ด‘์—ญ์‹œ ์ค‘๊ตฌ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 44๋ฒˆ๊ธธ 26 ์ค‘๊ตญ์ œ๊ณผ ๋‹ด (26, China town-ro 44beon-gil, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)

Phone: 032-773-8807


6. Pineapple cake (ํŽ‘๋ฆฌ์ˆ˜; Feng-li-su)

It is Taiwanese pineapple cake. It is yellow and has a kind of pineapple jam inside. It tastes sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ 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: ์ธ์ฒœ๊ด‘์—ญ์‹œ ์ค‘๊ตฌ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 44๋ฒˆ๊ธธ 26 ์ค‘๊ตญ์ œ๊ณผ ๋‹ด (26, China town-ro 44beon-gil, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea) / The same place as the mooncake shop.

Phone: 032-773-8807


7. Fruit skewers (ํƒ•ํ›„๋ฃจ; Tanghulu)

Incheon chinatown food 19

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 (์˜๋  ์™€ํ”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: ์ธ์ฒœ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 22 ์ฒ ํŒ๋งŒ๋‘์™€ํ”Œ (22, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)


9. Egg tart (์—๊ทธํƒ€๋ฅดํŠธ)

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ You should try this!

Price: 2,000 KRW for one

Address: ์ธ์ฒœ ์ค‘๊ตฌ ์ฐจ์ด๋‚˜ํƒ€์šด๋กœ 28 ๋‹ด์„ ์ƒ (28, China town-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, Korea)


10. Cotton candy (์†œ์‚ฌํƒ•; Som Satang)

Incheon chinatown food 21

There are so many creative cotton candies like colorful flower cotton candy. Enjoy the sweets ๐Ÿ™‚

Price: around 2,000-3,000 KRW

    I visited China Town in ์ธ์ฒœ 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?!!)

    • Jina Lyu Author 3 years ago

      I visited only two restaurants there but I wasn’t satisfied. I will visit and try again in different restaurants ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

  2. YoHan, Shin 3 years ago

    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 ์šฉํ™”๋ฐ˜์  ,these days, located nearby ๋™์ธ์ฒœ 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 youโ˜บ

    • Jina Lyu Author 3 years ago

      Ahhh I really wanted to try ์šฉํ™”๋ฐ˜์  but didn’t have time to go. I’ve heard good things about it a lot. and a food fighter lol I’m glad that I let you know I was there over two days haha otherwise, i would’ve been a food fighter. Thanks a lot Yohan! I always appreciate you ๐Ÿ™‚
