Spicy Rice Cake w/ Vegetables
떡볶이

 

Tteokbokki is one of Korea's popular snacks that are loved by teenagers as well as adults.  It is made from garaetteok, a chewy long cylindrical rice pasta (or "rice cake") that is cut into many pieces and cooked with various ingredients.  It is a stir-fry dish which is cooked with gochujang (red chili pepper paste) along with garaetteok, seasoned beef, fish cakes and assorted vegetables such as green onions, carrots and onions.

A spicy version of tteokbokki is very popular but less spicy ones can be also requested to meet everyone's taste buds.  In Korea, this snack is commonly purchased from street vendors much like hotdog vendors in New York City. However, it can be found in Korean fast food venues as well as some restaurants outside of Korea.
