Tteokbokki is a traditional Korean street food which can be usually purchased from street vendors also called “pojangmacha” in Korean. The history of tteokbokki brings us back to the late Joseon dynasty. There are many hypotheses and controversy about its real origin. According to bibliographic data, the first tteokbokki in Korean history is said to appear in a cook book called “시의정서(Siui jeongseo)” written in the late Joseon dynasty. However, based on the fact that tteok(the main ingredient, also known as rice cake) was produced even before in the Three Kingdoms period, it’s possible to assume that the history is longer than what’s usually considered.
