According to the findings of a survey conducted by Korea Tourism Organization last year, 54.2% of the respondents selected “street food” as their most enjoyable experience in Korea. Delicious street food such as tteokbokki (stir-fried rice cake) can be found anywhere in the country irrespective of the season. When the weather gets colder, Koreans look for fish cake. It is a seasonal delicacy with a salty taste and soft mouthfeel.
The popularity of Korean fish cake products overseas is increasing, as reflected in the growing demand. Korean producers are making fish cake in exceedingly hygienic facilities using high-quality fish fillet. Let us take a look at premium fish cake products exported by Korean companies.
1. Samjin Fish Cake
With 64 years of tradition, Samjin Food has become the first Korean fish cake company to receive royalties when exporting its fish cake. In August this year, Samjin Food opened a store in a famous Singaporean shopping mall, Ion Orchard, and has been exporting a variety of products to the country. The company is exploring France, Portugal, and other European markets with its crab cake and plans to enter Japan, China, and the US.
