Green Buns in Dongdaemun

Most of the shops in Dongdaemun were closed over New Year's weekend, but I still managed to buy something new:

Green tea buns filled with sweet red bean!
The bun was hot, filling, and well worth the 1000 won. The texture of the green-dyed bread resembled that of damp bread with big air holes. The red bean provided most of the flavor.

I was happy that I could finally try a steamed bun. They're normally filled with "mystery meat" that I will not eat. Red bean filling is my favorite fiber source!

Hi, This is a great post about the green buns and I'd like to use it as a reference to my travel blog. I recently visited Korea wanted to write about the many yummy foods there. Thanks so much!
