One of Korea's most famous street foods is tteokbokki. It is usually eaten as snack that can conveniently be eaten while walking. However in one street tteokbokki is considered as a proper, large meal to be shared. In Sindang-dong Tteokbokki Town, there are many restaurants serving this recipe. Served in a metal wok, customers are supposed to cook their own tteokbokki with the prepared ingredients. In addition to the usual rice cakes in chilli paste, tteokbokki here is also served with ramyeon noodle, fish cakes, fried mandus, boiled eggs and also onions and cabbages. Some restaurants also have seafood tteokbokki option.
Most of the restaurants in this street are open 24-hours, so you can get your spicy rice cake fix anytime you want. (source 1, source 2)
