Know Your Korean Food: Tteokkochi by Joel ParkTuesday, May 11, 2010
This is just rice cake on a stick, fried and covered in a sweet gochujang sauce. It seems to be hard to find nowadays (I may be wrong), but if you run into it, it's delicious and cheap. I got this from a cart on top of the hill that leads to Bogwangdong from Itaewon, by Chunghwa Apartments, for 500 won. Good stuff.
