Must-visit restaurants: Ttobogetji Tteokbokki in Seoul
Ttobogetji Tteokbokki is a popular tabletop tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes) restaurant chain in Hongdae, often shortened to “Ttotteok.” Ordering is easy at Ttotteok; just tell the staff the number of servings your group needs, and tteok (rice cakes), egg, eomuk (fish cakes), and three types of vegetables will be served to your table. There are plenty of add-ins you can order such as gamja sujebi (hand-pulled potato dough) or bacon, but the most recommended extra is a side of butter garlic fried potato. The spicy seasoning of tteokbokki is tempered by the smooth buttery potatoes, so even people unable to handle spicy foods can enjoy tteokbokki in Korea.
Address (Main Branch): 2F, 34-5, Jandari-ro 6-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul
