Montreal’s 3-Day Korean Street Food Fest Is Coming To Griffintown With BBQ, Kogos & K-Pop

Smells of Korean BBQ and sounds of K-pop will waft through the streets of Griffintown this August when POCHA MTL makes its grand return. The Montreal Korean street food market and culture festival will bring local businesses and performers together at the neighborhood’s MR-63 lot at the corner of rues Peel and Ottawa.

Organizers promise Korean fried chicken, pancakes and kogos (corn dogs with fried potato bits). In addition to a selection of dishes from Montreal restaurants, the event will feature the Sanchae Bibimbap and Korean tacos from two visiting chefs from South Korea.

Attendees might have to practice their eating/dancing multitasking skills: the festival will also feature some irresistible K-pop tunes — made catchier still by on-site dance troops and breakout sessions that the public is invited to join.

POCHA MTL will take place between Friday, August 19 and Sunday, August 21.

Additional details will come out on August 1, but get a summary of the info we have so far below.
