Ddeokbokee is one of the most popular snacks among teens, especially for girls. It's hot, hot, and hot !!! Might be to spicy for those who are not familiar with Korean food. However, it's really good. (Also you can make milder version.) Once you taste it, you will always go back and ask for more ! Thin rice cakes cook faster and also absorb flavor faster.
