Tteok-bokki (떡볶이) or Hot and Spicy Rice Cake is a popular Korean food made from small-sized garae-tteok (long, white, cylinder-shaped rice cakes) called tteokmyeon (떡면; “rice cake noodles”) or commonly tteok-bokki-tteok(떡볶이 떡; “tteok-bokki rice cakes”). Fish cakes, boiled eggs, and scallions are some of the most commonly added ingredients. It can be seasoned with either spicy gochujang (chili paste) or non-spicy ganjang (soy sauce)-based sauce; the former being the prototype, and the latter often called gungjung-tteok-bokki (royal courttteok-bokki). Today, variations also include curry-tteok-bokki, cream sauce-tteok-bokkijajang-tteok-bokki, seafood-tteok-bokkigalbi-tteok-bokki and so on. Tteok-bokki is commonly purchased and eaten at bunsikjip (snack bars) as well as pojangmacha (street stalls).
