What is Tteokbokki?

First of all, do you know what kind of dish "Ttejikukbap" is?

Dwaejigukbap is a Korean national dish of pork stew and soup served over rice!

The rich flavor that brings out the umami of the pork is sure to whet your appetite.

Like the main character's Seoul Naan, it is also delicious if you add kimchi or other ingredients to make it more flavorful.
