New Frisco restaurant brings Korean version of corny dog to Dallas
by Culture Map Dallas
For those still smarting over the demise of the 2020 State Fair of Texas comes this small ray of hope: Called Frank Seoul, it's a chain from Korea whose specialty bears a startling resemblance to the good old American corny dog.
Of course in Texas the corny dog crown belongs to Fletcher's, who already have a schedule of pop-ups to fill the need. But Frank Seoul surely merits a visit from any student of hot dogs or the cuisine known as "stick food" aka food on a stick.
According to a spokesperson, Frank Seoul is originally from South Korea, and there are already multiple Korean hot dog concepts open in California, with a big showing in San Diego. This is the first location in Texas, and it opened the first week of July.
Frank Seoul's menu features hot dogs and other Korean-style fried snacks and desserts.
Those include tteokbokki, or spicy stir-fried rice cakes. Tteokbokki start with with garaetteok, a cylinder-shaped white rice cake made with steamed rice flour. They're coated in a spicy red gojuchang sauce and stir-fried, then sprinkled with scallions.
They also have hotteok, sometimes called hoeddeok, which is a filled Korean pancake. Like much of the menu here, it's a popular street food in South Korea.
