Pronounced as tteokbokki, this dish is supposed to be one of the favourite dishes of the Koreans, especially as a street snack on a hungry after-work day. I remember first eating this food for lunch at a ski resort in Korea back in 2005. It was freezing cold; we were both tired from a day of non-stop skiing. In such a situation, the tteokbokki tasted especially lip-smacking and memorable.
This would make for a good dish to complement the next episode of 런닝맨 (Running Man)!
