Hello errrrrrrbody, first place that we would like to introduce is Korean local street food!
I bet many of you guys have heard of super various kinds of korean street food AND Toppokki must be the no.1 street food that you may wanna try out!
Well, I've seen some of singaporean friends actually didn't like Toppokki that much since they don't like the feeling of the texture when they chew it. However, some of Singaporean friends super loved it cos they love the spicy taste of KOREA hahaha
Here's the very famous Korean Toppokki place where is super crowded with locals!
AND the cons of this place is you DO NOT need to worry about sanitation cos it's not served outside like other street food! also, they make Toppokki right after you order the food, so it's vvvvvery fresh! :)
Well, here's the way.
This restaurants have 3 outlets in Hongdae so you can access to this place easily cos it's all near around your shopping heaven HAHA
and if you cannot find the location, you can ask any of koreans around hongdae and i'm sure they will know of it!
This sign is drawn at the 1st outlet of the restaurant! :)
It's located at the 2nd floor of the building!
Usually during the lunch time, it has a long queue so you'd better go there early!
Well for me, if they have a long queue, I just go to another outlet of the restaurant haha
However, 3rd outlet has recently been launched near around Coffee Prince cafe and there has less people cos most of the people are not aware of the restaurant :)
This is the famous Toppokki! (\11,000 for 2 pax)
Yayee, let's dig in!
Ok for this Toppokki, you can order the amount of the food by the party you have!
So you can order like 'Can I have Toppokki for 3 peeps?'
but I guess if you're with 2 friends (so, altogether 3) I recommend you order Toppokki for 2 people and order some other side dishes cos later you can mix the rice on the pan! (AND THAT'S SUPER DELICIOUS**)
and you can add some toppings whatever you want :)
I've added Cheese rice cake and it was pretty good haha
Toppokki! hmmmmm makes me hungry this late at night AHHHHHHHH
Staff will let you know when Toppokki is served,
you have to eat the noodle first since it may be stuck to the bottom of the pan!
and this is also a popular side dish at this restaurant!
Butter garlic fries (\5,000)
Everytime I bring my Korean friend here and let them try this
and their eyes always shine bright likka diamonds!! HAHAHA :) :)
Ok, after finishing Toppokki, you can mix the rice on the pan!
normally people order mixed rice with flying fish roe and cheese.
but you can order whatever you wanna eat :) :)
Mixed rice with cheese (\2,000)
Mixed rice with flying fish roe (\2,500)
Oh my, I feel like eating it NOW! HAHAHA
Ok, here is now one of the famous and popular Toppokki place in Korea and you would never regret going there cos it tastes soooo guuuuuud <3
