Richie and I went on theq hunt for the famous Rapokki (ramen + tteokbokki) being sold at certain Costco locations. Luckily, the Costco near our house had a full pallet of these bad boys and we snagged a bag!
The bag comes with 3 sets (rice cakes 3 each + sauces 3 each + ramen 3 each + spring onion flakes 3 each). It was a level 4 in spicy! How hot and tasty!
Cooking Direction (For 1 Set)
1) Wash rice wake with water and drain it.
2) In a pot, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add rice cakes, sauce and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3) Put noodle and dry spring onion into the pot and then boil it 3-4 minutes more.
4) Add extra toppings like kimchi, cheese, green onions, and spam. Enjoy!
It was so simple and easy to make! It only took us 8 minutes total. Our first bite was full of flavor and spice. We definitely felt the heat rushing through our mouth and it did not stop burning. I was in love with the rice cakes! It was so soft and chewy. The ramen noodles were not bad. It did soak in the spiciness pretty well from the broth. The added plus was all of the toppings we included which really made the whole meal come together.
Traditionally, this Korean dish is eaten as a midnight snack. To our surprise, we thought it was perfect for a family meal and made us full pretty quickly. Overall, we had a fun time making and trying this Korean product out.
