Rolled here for a tasting with other food bloggers. Really fun night, got to try the whole menu. The starring role was the Korean Rice cakes - yummy tubes of chewy toothsome carb, swimming in spicy sauce. The addition of tasty extras like fried noodle rolls, tempura, little sausages, fish cakes..all of it was pretty good. Spicier than the usual place, this place caters more to the Korean palate! Cool down the heat with seaweed covered rice balls, tuna and spam stuffed onigiri, and Korean pickles. More adventurous eaters can go for the spicy chicken feet. They give you a drinkable greek yogurt at the end to cool things down. Great service, solid food, see if you can take the heat!

Spicy Rice Cake (In Korean: Ddukbokki or Tteokbokki) is a popular classic street food of Korea. Among hundreds of ddukbokki restaurant chains in Korea, Yup Dduk is for sure one of the most popular one Korean-American Angelenos have been craving for in the U.S. It is known for its unique sweet and spiciness which makes the food so addicting. Eating Yup Dduk for the first time is a big challenge for the first timers, thus the store calls it #ktownspicychallenge Koreans are known for their love of spicy foods, but this restaurant brand is very serious about its spices. It is known for THE most spiciest rice cake brand of Korea. Order toppings such as rice balls, jumbo tuna mayo rice balls and some flavor milk products to survive the challenge. Everyone say, it is so spicy but just can't stop craving for more.

Rice cakes here are some of the best I've had! Beware the spiciness level, but if you're up for it try the Ktown Spicy Challenge!

Spicy! But good! I enjoyed everything I ate. I think it was my first time trying chicken feet, too. It looked really gross but it has collagen and I did like the flavor. Ask for the secret menu. It was yummy little side dish.
