smile ichon ddukbokki (이촌 떡볶이)

smile ichon dukbokki (이촌 떡볶이)
301-18 ichon-dong, yongsan-gu, seoul
tel: +82-2-749-5507

what was consumed: soondae, kimbap, ohdeng, ddukbokki, ... boonsik!

there seems to be a dearth of good boonsik (korean snack foods, frequently eaten, collectively, as a meal) near where i live. boonsik is frequently the best in local "neighborhoods" and near universities. lucky for me, ichon ddukbokki exists and they quench all cravings. nothing fancy, but all delish. additionally, the people working at ichon ddukbokki are super nice and are most interested in serving yummy boonsik, not making a quick (but wasteful) buck. YES!

p.s. i've returned to ichon ddukbokki and realized they have soondae bokkeum (순대볶음), sauteed korean sausage with rice cakes, noodles, sesames leaves, etc. all in the spicy ddukbokki sauce. m and i ordered 1 serving (we also ordered a bunch of other stuff) and that really was enough for the both of us, big eaters that we are (for reals). and i will say, the bokkeum hit the spot. delish. super delish. will definitely be going back just for this. can't wait!
