Korea is famed for its street food, and 'food-on-a-stick' is a staple of the Korean street food markets. Hot dog on a stick, potato spirals on a stick, meatballs on a stick, and many more. Yet one of the best Korean street food 'sticks' is Japanese-inspired octopus on a stick - BBQ char-grilled octopus, rolled in umami-rich bonito flakes and drizzled with slightly sweet okonomiyaki sauce. Quick and easy to prepare in advance, octopus on a stick is great for BBQs at home.
