Comfort Food: Rabokki

by Rose

Eversince we learned how to cook tteokbokki, it has become our go-to comfort food when we crave something Korean. We also love kimbap but it’s such a chore to make compared to soup-based dishes where you simply mix everything in a pot. We once prepared budae jjigae as well but it’s not much of a regular thing since there are too many ingredients to source.

Rabokki, as one of my previous posts indicated, is a curious mix of ramen and tteokbokki. We got the idea after watching an episode of Three Meals A Day where Eric even threw some deep-fried octopus into the mix. My sister tweaked its spiciness a bit to suit our family’s palate but this one’s fairly easy to prepare.

To start with, I shop for ingredients from Big+Mart. It’s a Korean grocery store near USPF in Lahug and they have everything! Here’s a list of what you’ll need:

  1. Boil 1 tbsp Dashida anchovy powder in 4 cups of water. Add two strips of miyeok for added flavor. This will serve as your broth.

  3. Add tteokbokki first (if frozen, soak in hot water for 2-3 minutes before adding it to the sauce) and eomuk after. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add white onions. Optional: you can add cheese if you want a rich, spicy, creamy sauce for your rabokki.
