Sindang-dong Tteokbokki Town was built in the late 1970s. From middle-aged people who are reminiscent of the good old days when tteok-bokki (stir-fried rice cake) was a main staple to young people today who simply enjoy this street food, Sindang-dong Tteokbokki Town is always bustling with visitors. The sauce used differs by store and thus every tteokbokki restaurant has its own unique flavor to offer. Some restaurant uses a mixture of gochu-jang (red chili paste) and chun-jang (fermented soybean sauce boiled to color caramel). Moreover, basic ingredients such as eggs, ramyeon, dumplings, and fish cake are sold together in a set menu but customers can also customize the dish by adding or removing any topping of their choice.
