The Best Tteokbokki in Seoul : 나누미떡볶이

Tteokbokki is one of the most popular street foods in Seoul. Like kimbap, everyone has their preferences when it comes to ingredients, spiciness, sweetness, ect. However the best tteokbokki place I've ever visited is 나누미떡볶이 / Nanumi Tteokbokki in Seonggyungwan-ro!

Nanumi Tteokbokki has been around for decades, and has been featured on TV multiple times. This 24 matjip always has a line running out the door, but the staff are hard-working and quick-footed enough to keep things running smoothly. The menu is short and simple, and my friend and I ordered 2 Busan eomuk (1,000 won each) and a serving of tteokbokki to share (4,000 won). We asked for kimbap as well, however they were sold out.

The eomuk was good, but the tteokbokki was the best I've ever had in Korea! The rice cakes were soft and chewy, the sauce was sweet and tangy, and the whole thing was served at the perfect temperature. We devoured it in minutes, and I'm not ashamed to admit that afterwards I dipped a spoon into the sauce because I couldn't get enough.

I highly recommend Nanumi Tteokbokki if you're in the area and looking for a quick, delicious treat! If you want to come in a pair you won't have to wait too long, however I wouldn't recommend this place for large groups.
