South Korea’s ever-so-popular street food snack stall, Monnani Kwabaeggi, is making its international debut in Singapore! Kkwabaeggi, also known as Korean ugly pretzels, are essentially doughnuts made using glutinous rice flour dough and twisted to give them odd-looking shapes.
They are deep-fried to give it a golden brown and crisp exterior, then after coated with cinnamon powder and sugar. Mildy sweet, fluffy, and spongy, these snacks bear great similarity to churros.
