The weather has cooled and the snack vendors are selling different foods now. The little fish snack cakes/붕어빵 are back. Did you know there is a Korean expression for when a baby looks just like his father (we’ve been hearing this a lot)? They call the baby boong-uh-bbang/붕어빵, think “chip off the old block.” Because the snack cakes are made from a mold, they are identical.


Little fish snack cakes are filled with 팥/sweet red bean paste.
