Korean street junk fusion is on the up. I feel like I’ve been reading for months about the Kogi Taco trucks in LA, and a few weeks ago, Zen Kimchi posted an interesting piece about the bulgoki hotdogs, chopped galbi and fries and beef and kimchi sandwiches that are becoming popular in the states. 

As most of these things seem to be happening in America though, thus far I haven’t really felt able to relate. On Friday night however, en route to the pub, I got the opportunity to sample what may well be the next item in this flavour mashing craze; the Tteokburger. 

Selling from a street stall near Gangnam station, the Rice Cake or ‘Tteok’ burger is pretty much what it sounds like. Beef patties are roughly formed around three or four thick, cylindrical ricecakes. They are then cooked on a hotplate, and sandwiched into a sesame seed  bun with some shredded cabbage and lots of ketchup and mustard. 

 

As street burgers go this was pretty good. The patty was thick and meaty (even with the addition of the rice cakes the burger probably had more beef than any of the nearby fast food chains,) and the tteok managed to lend a bit of substance to the burger without being intrusively chewy or bland. What I really loved about this burger however was the sauce overload. A couple of good squirts of ketchup and that watery Korean mustard (it looks like cheese in the photo) and the burger turned into the sort of cheap, sweet, messy affair that’s made for right between the third and fourth beers of a Friday night. 

Now that’s lesbian videos what I’m tteoking about!

    Wait… so the tteok are inside the patty? That is so creative! I hope I can find this in America.

    Yup! You’re right, fantastically creative and a great example of how quirky street food can be!

    Could you tell us what exit? More detailed directions would be helpful. Thanks. :)

  8. By Street Foodie - June 2, 2010

    Sure no problem! Go out exit six, turn left at the first opportunity, then right so that you are on a busy backstreet parallel to the the main road. Keep walking away from the direction of Gangnam station. You’ll come to a crossroads with a bunch of street food sellers. The burgers should be to your right just before you cross the road. I know that they are not usually there on mondays, but as far as I’m aware they are there the rest of the week and definitely at milf porn weekends. Enjoy!

    I’ve tried this before. Wasn’t a fan of the ddeok. Maybe it was because I wasn’t expecting it. Those patties looked huge and when I bit into it I was like “wtf is this?”

  10. By Street Foodie - July 4, 2010

    I can see how that might be a bit of a shock if you weren’t expecting it! In my opinion the ddeok is what makes it, had one last night as a matter of fact!

    I don’t think these meat patties are made of beef, but rather pork. Because the price of beef is higher than pork, most of the process meat products sold in Korea will be made of pork.
