  • Tteokbokki  is the yum.
  • blender61: Tteokbokki  is the yum.


    That looks good, although the photo they include in the article is not appealing.

    I need to try this somewhere if I can find it locally.

    Much better photo

  • No Kimchi Buchimgae? (Kimchi pancakes). That's really my favorite.  I'd almost buy a ticket to Seoul if I could just to get some of them pancakes.

  • That soybean paste stew smells like sh÷t, but tastes good. Weird.
  • Mmmm, chicken feet.  One of my favorite dim sum dishes.

  • Grilled chicken feet, when done well, is stonking delectable. Cartilaginous goodness bursting with flavor. When I travel to Southeast Asia, it's one of my favorite street foods.

    A year ago, I was bar hopping with a friend in Brooklyn. Around 3:00am, as we we're coming out of a bar, gloriously drunk. I saw a Chinese food truck with a sandwich board advertising chicken feet. So I says to my friend I says, "You have got to try this." She was pretty into her cups so was willing. I bought one for each of us. I sank my front teeth in and the meat was leathery and tasted of Old Bay. Before my friend could take a bite, I snatched the kebab stick from her and tossed it in a storm drain saying, "This will not be your first chicken foot experience." Then we disappeared into the night for more hijinks.
  • My chicken feet story.

    I was once at a dim sum lunch with coworkers, and showed up a bit late.  I started loading up my plate with random stuff and eating, and after awhile I became dimly aware that everyone was staring at me.  I look up and my manager (who was of Asian descent and sitting next to me) asked me how I liked the chicken feet I was eating.  "Oh, is that what this is?" I said.  I shrugged and kept eating it as if was no big deal (which it wasn't, it tasted delicious to me) and I could sense everyone's disappointment at my lack of reaction.
  • Chicken feet souse from the Caribbean
  • some of youz is on it.
    Except for that one biatch using a pizza wheel to cut pancakes. Nobody got time for that.

    OB and soju. DRINK.

  • Tteokbokki is delicious, although the sauce is not really that spice. 

    Goldfish bread (붕어빵)  is a terrific winter treat. It's basically a waffle shaped like a fish that's filled with sweet red bean jam and served hot. So good on a cold Seoul night.

    A bowl of dol sot bibimbap (돌솥 비빔밥) is also really filling comfort food. It's bibimbap served in a sizzling hot stone bowl. The rice burns slightly and makes a toasty crunch when you stir it all together,

    I agree. the article photo was to soupy. Some people like it that way. I'm not one of them.
    Both are good.
  • Doenjang! A wonderful comfort food to make.

  • " ... soybean paste stew ..."

    Aka miso by the invaders from just across the straits

    someone on r/food called them chicken paws today and I giggled a bit.
  • What, no beondegi?

    [ducks & covers]
  • No. Tteokbokki is inedible to the typical American palate. It's not the taste, it's the texture. It's rigatoni left to soak in a spicy vodka sauce with soy-sauce liberally added, and left in the fridge for two weeks to soak and swell up, and then reheated. Only worse. It sticks to your teeth like taffy. Savory taffy.

    Not enough soju in the world for that, and believe me, I tried.

    No, it doesn't taste the same.

    I didn't realize the fish-shaped red bean ones were Korean; I've usually gotten them frozen from my local Japanese market.  Yum. And Dolsot bibimbap was where I would have gone (I'm vegetarian, usually get the tofu soup instead, but there's so much good cold-weather comfort food in Korea even without the meat.)

    Reminds me... i need to pick up some rice cakes...and make tteokbokki. Oh, is it good. So. Very. Good.

    Made spicy chicken a couple of weeks ago. Mmm. Bulgogi.

    Um, you had some effed up tteokbokki, then. It should be spicy and slightly sweet.

    I've found some surprisingly good frozen ones at the local Asian grocery store. If you have access to one (99 Ranch, H-Mart or similar) take a look.
  • Also, for those interested in making tasty Korean treats at home, Maangchi (youtube) is a good resource.
  • Korean food always calls for way too much burnt sesame oil

    /no such thing as toasted sesame, it's raw or burnt
