When Korean cravings are intense, mukbang is life.
We had kimbap and dakgangjeong for take-out from Hururuk Korean Street Food. It’s a kiosk located at the ground floor of Robinsons Iloilo and they sell authentic Korean street food like tteokboki, odeng (Korean fish cake soup), kimchi pizza, kimbap, bibimbap, dakgangjeong (Korean fried chicken), and potato hot dog.
Mukbang (먹방) is eating broadcast in which a host eats large quantities of food and may or may not be interacting with their audience. It’s usually done through an internet webcast via streaming platforms and became very popular in South Korea in the late 2010s.
A new trend with mukbang videos is the the “cook-bang” where the host would then eat what was cooked and describe to the audience what was consumed.

I promise I’ll try to be more interactive next time. Also spot the fangirl. 🙂
