The Young people’s cafe tteokbokki is one of the most popular Korean street foods, and a must-try for those who have a soft spot for these chewy rice cakes in spicy sauce. They are typically made with long, white rice cakes, fishcakes, vegetables and various other toppings to create a dish that consists of several tastes all at once.떡볶이창업
Tteokbokki is a comforting and filling dish that can be enjoyed alone or shared amongst friends. Aside from its flavorful savory sauce, the dish is also rich in vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin B6, calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. It is also a source of energy and a good snack option when you are feeling hungry. It can be easily found in many street food restaurants or even some fast-food chains.
In recent years, the tteokbokki restaurant trend has been rising rapidly in New York City. The most recent addition is Witch Topokki, an all-you-can-eat DIY tteokbokki parlor in Flushing that opened its doors in late December 2017. Owned by the chef of ramen-centric Geo Seo Gi and tuna-focused Dongwon sushi restaurant, Park Jung-seong, Witch focuses on expanding the scope of what tteokbokki can be.
It’s a restaurant that serves all kinds of original street food and different appetizers using traditional cooking techniques. Their main focus is on their tteokbokki, and they have over 10 creative iterations of this dish. The restaurant has been a hit amongst the locals since opening its doors. The location is very convenient, being just steps away from restaurant-heavy Cheongdam District. The restaurant stays open until midnight and has been a favorite place for those who want to grab late night eats after a night out.
This is the same tteokbokki restaurant that was featured in the popular Korean drama, True Beauty. The main reason why it has garnered so much attention is because of Baek Sehee’s character, a young social media director who suffers from depression and tries to cover it up with her work. She is so busy with her career that she hardly has time to spend on relationships or socialize.
She has an intense love for tteokbokki and would crave it at the drop of a hat. She tries to hide her emotional problems and keeps them at bay by focusing on her work and spending her free time on tteokbokki. The tteokbokki in the drama is made with pork, mushroom and radish. This is a simple yet delicious recipe that you can try at home.
Mix the sliced radish, onion and mushroom in a bowl. Then add the ground pork and stir well. Add salt to taste and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until the pork is completely cooked. Add the sliced tofu sheet and cook for another minute. Finally, add the instant ramen noodles and 1 tbsp of flour roux. Cook until the sauce thickens and serve warm!
The tteokbokki in this restaurant is more creamy than the usual red tteokbokki, as it’s prepared with milk and garlic. It’s a bit more savory and less spicy compared to traditional tteokbokki and it’s especially loved by younger generations as the texture is very smooth.청년다방
