New Iowa restaurant serves very unique corndogs [PHOTOS]

Have you ever heard of Korean corn dogs?

In December, a new restaurant in Iowa called Naughtea officially opened at 1810 SW White Birch Circle in Ankeny. As the name suggests, the restaurant specializes in a variety of teas, including boba tea, but they also serve something called Korean Corn Dogs.

Korean corn dogs are a popular Korean street food that is a bit different from your typical American corndog. First of all, corn dogs don’t need to have hot dogs or sausages in them. They can also be filled with mozzarella cheese, rice cakes, or seafood. Second, Korean corn dog batter is usually made with rice flour, which is crispier than the cornmeal batter that Korean corn dogs are made with. American corn dogs are made. And then there is the coating! According to the website Ling, “Korean corn dog is coated in panko breadcrumbs, which makes it more crispy. Korean corn dogs can also be coated in cornflakes or ramen. After being fried until golden brown, they are coated in sugar.”

At Naughtea, you can have your dog stuffed with Korean corn with a hot dog, mozzarella cheese, or a cheese and hot dog combo. Your flavor options are classic, potato fries, sweet potato fries, hot cheetos, and Ube cheese. According to really simpleube is”a purple yam from the Philippines” who has a “slightly nutty, vanilla flavor and is commonly used in desserts.” Naughtea also offers a variety of supplements for their Korean Corn Dogs, including Cheese, Ketchup, Sriracha, Sriracha Ketchup, and Sriracha Mayonnaise.
