Tteokbokki (Stir-fried Rice Cake)

Tteokbokki Restaurant
(Stir-fried Rice Cake)

Tto Bo Ge Jji  또보겠지 떡볶이

This is a very very popular Tteokbokki(떡볶이) restaurant in Hongdae!!!
It's getting more and more popular,
and I see so many people waiting in a line in front of this restaurant
every time when I pass by here.

I love Tteokbokki, so I usually have it almost every week.
For me,
this is the best Tteokbokki ever!!!
So much better than any where else!

This is The Tteokbokki!! 
People wait for an hour to have this!
So fresh and tasty. Also spicy, of course! :D Love it!
I just love the fresh mint leaves on top as well as the fried fish cakes. :D

You need to boil this Tteokbokki for few minutes and start with noodle first.

It can be very spicy for you.... :(
I strongly recommend the Garlic Butter Fries!!! Especially for ones who can't take spicy food well. The sweetness of the fries will ease your tongue... :)) 

THIS IS IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Garlic Butter Fries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Taste amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's just so delicious!!!
Everyone loves this!!! So sweet and yum!!! It goes so well with spicy Tteokbokki!!! :)

You can order fried rice after you finish Tteokbokki. :)
This is the Flying Fish Roe Fried Rice. It's the most popular fried rice menu here.
:D We added cheese on top!

I actually went this restaurant in Hongdae and waited for more than 30 minutes...
but still many people were waiting before me... so I gave up, at the end!
Then, I moved to Sinchon to have this at the Sinchon branch!!! haha...
Sinchon one was newly opened, so there weren't many people yet.
And I went to the Sinchon one many times... 
It's so addictive!!!!!!!!!

Fine Beef Restaurant

Fine Beef BBQ Restaurant

Top Sirloin

일편등심 (Il pyeon deung sim?)

There're heaps of Korean BBQ restaurants in Hongdae,
and you may have hard time to choose where to go.

You can have yummy pork BBQ in most of restaurants in Hongdae,
but it's not that easy to find a high quality beef restaurant
as Hongdae is full of college youth and teenagers.

(As you know, young people usually don't spend much money for food.. 
also many of them can't afford to have a big meal with fine beef..)

This restaurant serves the top quality beef, and it has cozy and nice atmosphere.
It's not like normal noisy and busy BBQ restaurants. 
Soft lighting and separated seats make you feel comfortable here. :)

These are all different flavored salt.

Plain, Orange, Strawberry, Green tea, Cheese, Raspberry, Mugwort, Black Tea

( I think Green Tea Salt with beef taste awesome! :D )

They use only prime Korean beef,
and they recommend the best part of beef everyday.

This is the new type of soju!!!
Yuzu soju, Korean citron flavored soju, is really soft and sweet!!!!!! :D Love it!!!

Look at the color of the beef!!!

 Sirloin and Neck Chain.

Short Rib Plate(?) - Not sure in English.,... :(( 
and Top Blade.

I'm trying these four types of salt. :)) Interesting!

Taste just amazing.......................... melting in my mouth!!! :D 

This is Soy Bean (Deonjang) Stew with rice. (It's like porridge.)
It's yum!!!!!! We usually have this when we eat beef! :)
