Sundae (순대) or Korean Black Pudding / Blood Sausage is an easily found Korean street food. However it’s often one of those things that people overlook due partly because of it’s appearance. As with a traditional sausage it’s a pig or cow intestine filled with meat, glass noodles (normally soaked in blood) as well as vegetables and other ingredients (it depends on the region and style).
Thoughts: We personally really like Sundae and will whenever possible have some whilst eating Tteokbokii. It’s also normally pretty cheap with a place from a street seller costing between ₩2,000 and ₩4,000 ($2 to $4) and a 1kg supermarket version costing between ₩10,000 and ₩15,000 ($10 to $15).
If you want to try some traditional Korean food then Sundae should be on your list. Also unlike Kimchi and Tteokbokii it isn’t spicy.
