Soft and chewy rice cakes are stir-fried in a thick tteokbokki sauce prepared from seaweed or fish stock, gochujang paste, and gochugaru chili flakes. 

It is available at bunsikjip snack bars and pojangmacha street food booths, where street vendors work behind enormous hot plates to stir fry the rice cakes in vivid red tteokbokki sauce.  

Some will serve it with eomuk fish cakes separately or on skewers, while others would serve it with seafood or boiled eggs topped with green onions.  

We first discovered tteokbokki rice cakes while wandering the alleyways of Nampo-dong in Busan, South Korea. This establishment is made for foodies.
