One of my favorite things to eat during fall and winter is hotteok! It’s absolutely delicious especially if you have a big sweet tooth like me. It’s pretty much a pancake filled with melted brown sugar, honey, and depending on the region it’s from nuts and seeds. It’s a typical street food in Korea and is very popular to eat. Although these days they are available throughout the year, they are most popular to eat during the fall and winter months. 

Blue Crab

This type of crab is rampant during the autumn seasons. They are quite popular to eat raw in South Korea and they are absolutely delicious. The weather provides them to stay colder longer and also they are just more flavorful during these months. If you haven’t had raw crab, you should definitely try it out. They are so soft, refreshing, and tender if marinated well. They usually provide 2 different flavors, a spicy one with a gochujang base and a soy-marinated one with some pickled peppers. 

Jumbo Prawns

These prawns are quite popular during the fall months. You can find them in a lot of restaurants but Cheonan is a popular location to get them. They are often boiled, steamed, or fried. The best recommendation is to eat them by sprinkling them with coarse sea salt and steaming them in a large pan. Korean food usually is served with a ton of banchan or side dishes and oftentimes you should dip them in gochujang – a spicy red paste. 

Pine Mushrooms

These are absolutely my favorite to have when I eat samgyupsal. They are pretty big in size and are absolutely delicious to be pan-fried with some salt. You can easily find these all year long, but they are pretty popular during the autumn season. 


I always know it’s fall when persimmons are available to eat. Koreans like to eat them fresh and crunchy, soft, and also dried. They are quite sweet especially when they are dried. They are my favorite and remind me of Chuseok and American Thanksgiving. My mom used to get them a lot when I was a kid and we would eat them during Thanksgiving.

For example, it’s quite common to see women in Korea wearing short skirts, so short that we as foreigners may find it shocking. However, they are covered up on top when it comes to the shoulders, chest area, etc. It’s something to considered prior to you packing for your trip or move to South Korea.
