Tteokbokki 1 - A homemade 떡볶이 Tteokbokki Recipe because I'm missing Seoul

In my 25 years of life, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to a handful of countries. Though I have been to three continents, I can still say with certainty that my heart belongs to Asia. To me, the countries in Asia alone will leave your soul satisfied in every aspect, may it be culture, …
