Without a doubt one of my favorite things in Korea is the highway rest stop (휴게소). It's part and parcel of taking a vacay in Korea. You can't find these rest stops just anywhere though, they can only be found along the major highways. The reason I like them so much is that there's such a variety of food and so much to see, it's like cruising a Taiwanese night market - well not quite but kind of.^^

|The inside of a walnut cake has a walnut and red bean paste. Taiwan has a similiar cake but there is custard inside as well. I personally like the custard ones better.
|These are rest stop potatoes. Maybe just as famous as walnut cakes because you can only find them at highway rest stops. Here's a recipe for them from my favorite Korean food site Aeri's Kitchen Rest Stop Potato
|Hodduck is an oily flap jack (not pancake but fried bread dough) with brown sugar and seasame seeds in the middle. Super tasty - once again I only like to eat it in the winter cause it's hot and oily.
|The only thing that I've noticed Korean rest stops lack is proper and delicious coffee.
