This Korean street food is a combination of two dishes.
It may not be a dish that needs a recipe, but for those who are curious as to what goes into a delicious bowl of this loaded noodle dish, a recipe of how to make rabokki is exactly what is required.
What is rabokki?
A popular Korean street food item, a rabokki is actually a mishmash of two other popular Korean dishes: the tteok-bokki and the ramyun. A tteok-bokki is made of rice cakes or tteok that have been stir fried or bokki, hence "tteokbokki". The dish "tteokbokki" is a saucy dish made with a sweet and spicy gochujang or red pepper paste sauce with the rice cakes, eomuk or fish cake slices, egg, scallions, and garlic added. However, when it's mixed with ramyun or instant ramen, it becomes a new dish called rabokki.
This too can be served just like the tteokbokki: as is or served with nori sheets, sesame seeds, and a soft-boiled egg. To level it up even more, add an ajitsuke tamago or ramen egg. You can make these at home! Boil 4 large eggs for 6 minutes. Cool and peel. Then dunk it a mixture made of 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 cup chicken stock,1 small red onion, and 1 smashed garlic. Refrigerate overnight or up to 3 days! You'll get a jelly yolk when you slice into it.
