Crave Alert: Ramen Ddeokbokki… With Cheese!

Being a staple Korean dish, it is usually found served up in little street carts all over Korea and Korean eateries all over the U.S. Ddeokbokki can be prepared a hundred different ways and the ddeok (rice cake) comes in different shapes like the cylinder and flat oval designs. You can find ddeok on skewers dripping with hot sauce or on a large plate in front of a hungry lot of drunken friends after a few rounds at the local suljip (Korean bar).
