You can have fun in your own city visiting ethnic grocery stores and trying new foods. I bought some easy cook rice cakes in a spicy sauce at the Galleria Express on Bloor Street.
In small print below the Korean script (Hangeul), the product name ‘Bunmoja Tteok-Bokki’ is in English. Tteok-Bokki are Rice Cakes in Korean.
I followed the instructions and cooked it in the 1000 watt microwave for 5 minutes and 30 seconds.
You do eat with your eyes first, I can’t say it looked particularly appetizing, but I’m not a big fan of rice cakes. Overall it was OK, but the fun part was picking it up in the store and trying something new! Try it with anything the next time you’re in the grocery.
