Tteokbokki Wars: Jaws Tteokbokki
There are so many tteokbokki joints in Korea these days that it might be hard to figure out who is truly the best. I mean is it the ajumma down the street or is it one of these new fangled, franchised places.
It's all about the sauce.
Jaws Tteokbokki which is run by CJ Foods (which is owned by Samsung) is spicy. The fried tempura is crispy and the the sundae is...alright (I'm not a huge fan of the stuff). The place is clean and it is always filled with young people sweating over their meal. The rice cake noodles here are chewy and they are shorter and fatter than some of the counterparts that are longer and thinner. It's a good idea here to get a couple extra cups of water to cool down your mouth.
