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 neighbourhood'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 chefs visiting from South Korea.
