Year of Spamchi

Sign of credit crunch and food inflation times, consumption of spam skyrocketed last year in Korea.
Particularily since Korea's finest restaurant is about to close1, there's no reason not enjoy Seoul's delicious and cheap street food.

As a suggestion to street vendors, here's my home made recipe : a layer of grilled cabbage gimchi (classic 배주 김치) on a grilled slice of spam. I dubbed "Spamchi" (스팸치) this utterly unhealthy food, a BBQ erzatz version of the popular samgyeopsal gimchi jjigae (삼겹살김치찌개).

It's rumored to be delicious but unfortunately I don't like spam. I'm more the mandu (만두) or sundae (순대) or bindaetteok (빈대떡) kind of street fooder.
