Jaws Ddeokbokki (죠스떡볶이)

Posted on: January 4, 2012

Ddeokbokki (떡볶이) is made from slices of rice cakes, some fish cakes with spicy sauce. However, Jaws Ddeokbokki does not mean they put actual jaws in there. It’s one of a famous ddeokbokki shop that you can find around Seoul easily (Hongdae, Ewha, Myeong-dong, to name a few – mainly because I’ve been to these places and saw it).

Unlike other street vendor style, Jaws offers (comfortable) places to sit inside the shop or you can just go straight to the small window for a ‘Take Out’ service. Since it is very cold outside, my (hungry) friend and I went inside and chose ddeokbokki with fried stuff (can’t remember the name!) set. My advice, some of you might want to ask them not to put ‘mandu’ inside the dish.

This is what the dish look like. I was so stunned to find a small chili floating in the soup, even though it is not that spicy. The red sauce is yummy but……….. SPICY!! I do love spicy food but some Korean spicy food is hard to describe. It makes your mouth fiery, your nose is over flowing with mucus and your eyes watery (okay might overreact a bit). Overall, the food is nice, the service is good, and the price is quite cheap. 5,000 won for the set above. Having it during winter makes your body hot, but I shudder thinking of having it during summer. @-@

*can I have more tomorrow? yum yum~
