Eomuk can be boiled on a skewer in broth and is sold in street carts where they can be eaten with alcoholic beverages, especially soju, similar to the function of corn dog stands. The broth is sometimes given to the customer in paper cups for dipping and drinking.]

While the Hot Bar is still served on a stick or skewer, the recipe calls for deep frying instead of boiling.
