Along with Sukiyaki, we had a little taste of Korea. This dish is made by a Korean friend. Tteokbokki might be hard word to pronounce to most people. This means in good English - spicy ricecake casserole. It is a popular street food in Korea and really enjoyed eating it. Some of the ingredients here can usually be found in Asian market.
