My mom picked up a bunch of Korean pastries from the pastry store when we went to K town for lunch one day. I couldn’t help but be intrigued by this pastry I saw. Firs, as an aside, Koreans have some strange savory pastries – for example they like to make “pizza pastries” which is essentially pizza but on a more sweet dough. They also make “hot dog pastries” which is the same dough but it’s wrapped around a hot dog like a giant pig in a blanket. This was a donut filled with tuna salad?
The outside was fried and quite airy. It didn’t have any sweetness to it so it tasted just like fried dough but then you got to the center and it was stuffed with tuna salad.
I know it sounds gross but really, if you think about it, it’s just fried dough. If the tuna salad was more tasty, I was thinking this could be pretty good! So the question is, would you eat this?
