if you've never tried tteokbokki, i suggest you try it at least once in your life. it's so good! hot (spicy), sweet, buttery sauce with soft and chewy ricecakes.... just yum :) especially when the korean person serving you is cheeky with the hotness level. my favorite is at this one restaurant where the chef is a korean man around 60 years old, and he asks "hot? really? are you sure?" because one look at me and everybody just sees a little girl LOL he and the servers are amazed i can finish the whole thing :) please try tteokbokki! it's one of the best korean dishes i know :)
