Weekend Rabokki in 20 Minutes Flat (Ramen + Tteokbokki) 🍜

Friday is my favorite day to make a yummy snack to kick off the weekend and there is no better Korean snack than rabokki. What is rabokki? Rabokki combines the words ramyun and tteokbokki and refers to a relatively new but very popular Korean street food that is commonly served in Korean bunsik restaurants. Tteokbokki is yummy enough but add in some chewy ramyun noodles and mmmmm, the weekend has officially begun!

A few veggies like Korean radish, napa cabbage, and onion balance the carb, but you can skip these if you don’t have handy. This super simple recipe will take you from cutting board to devouring in 20 minutes flat. Double the recipe and throw in some protein like a boiled egg or odeng if you want to eat as a main dish.
