It feels like fall has officially started after a few rainy days.
The chilly weather is a good reason to stay cosy and to cook something hot and spicy.
Tteobokki is a common street food in Korea, just think of hod dogs in the U.S.
The sweet and spicy sauce and tender rice cake are so hearty and will warm you up in a chilly weather.
Tteobokki is mostly considered as a snack, but you can definitely have it as a meal on a lazy day since it’s pretty filling. You can also be creative for the sub-ingredients. Eggs and fish cake all work great with the sweet and spicy sauce.
