Tteokbokki in Korea has changed a lot. Traditional one is made with flour rice cake with red pepper paste, fish cake, or other ingredients. These days very hot sauce with cheese is popular on everyone’s tongue. Yeopgi Tteokbokki has very spicy and addictive taste. Yeopgi means seeking the strange and different.
As its name suggests, Tteokbokki here is very very hot. Just one rice cake will make you benumb by its taste. Even though i ate steamed egg and drink cold water, my tongue was still paralyzed. It is different from jalapeno peppers. After few minutes, i wanted to eat more although it was really hot.
I don't recommend this to those who have an allergy to spicy food. It is weird that you want more just after few minutes. In foreign country, they usually drink a milk which is good for reducing spicy taste, but this store sells Coolpis the beverage which will soothe your burned tongue.
Yeopgi Tteokbokki costs 14000 won and is enough for 4 or 5 people. Chewy cheese and soft fish cake were also good. In store, they have 13 tables for two or four. Interior was cafe style and quiet, so it is a good place when you hang out with friends. You can add toppings as you want: cheese, fried dumpling, ham, egg, rice cake, quail egg, or cellophane yam noodles with extra cost.
You can also ask them not to make the food too spicy, but even if you do that there still remains hot and spicy taste. As a side dish, they serve mini sized-rice ball. This is also good for soothing your tongue. If you are still burning with this hot food, just take your time for few minutes. Pungency will disappear. Since koreans like spicy food, many sweet beverage like Coolpis is becoming famous. That's why they have a phrase which says "check if this product is original or not" on its carton. Maybe there are lots of fake Coolpis out there.
Hotseasoner, which is a franchise company, runs Yeopgi Tteokbokki and has 167 franchise including 11 stores under direct management. You can check the stores at http://yupdduk.com. You can take out your leftovers with 500 won. Although you don't want to eat anymore because of its spicy flavor, you want to eat them again in a moment.
