Photos: hodduk at Ajumama

We’ve made a couple stops at Dinin’ Hall, Columbus’ first mobile food pod, to sample the different trucks and carts parked there. One recent Tuesday, we found ourselves in the neighborhood and swung by to try one of the newer trucks that’s making a splash: Ajumama.

Ajumama is unique to Columbus, in that they’re serving up Korean street food. I’ve heard tell of long lines of eager customers, ready to try something new in Columbus’ culinary makeup.

And frankly, I can see why. By my account, Ajumama is a breakfast truck (I’m always looking for an excuse, aren’t I?). Their signature dish is called pajeon, which are savory pancakes filled everything from grilled chicken, seafood, veggies, and kimchi. They also serve a mushroom rice porridge, and these beauties, pictured above. They’re called hodduk, and are like tiny stuffed pancakes.

They’re loaded with brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts. They get flattened on the grill and browned, then are served piping hot.

When you tear it open, the insides come out like a volcano of sweetness. You need to let it cool a bit, but once it does, it’s delicious.

If the hodduk are anything to go by, I’m going to love the menu at Ajumama. I’m looking forward to reporting on return visits!

If you want to give them a try, here’s their info:

Through the end of May you can find them Tuesdays and Thursdays at Dinin’ Hall on 400 W. Rich St., from 11a-2p.

I love breakfast. So I eat it a lot, & write about it. In my city of Columbus, Ohio & wherever I travel, I'm out to find & enjoy all the breakfasts out there.
