Yup Dduk is a solid spot to eat before a night out in Koreatown. It’s in a strip mall across from Cassell’s, and serves tteokbokki (stir-fried rice cakes) in a super spicy gochujang sauce stew. It comes with fish cakes, cheese, sausage, and egg, and you can add ramen or udon noodles, so you’ll have a serious the base layer in your stomach for the soju you’re about to drink. Even the mild is pretty spicy, so keep that in mind when picking your spicy level.
