Know Your Korean Food: Tteokkochi by Joel Park


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.
