Spicy Korean rice cakes AKA tteokbokki are a dime a dozen in Singapore, but that is not the same case for traditional Korean rice cakes. This explains why I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled upon Bosong Ricecake, a traditional rice cake store helmed by a Korean. Even better, it’s located right next to Beauty World MRT Station! Their selection of rice cakes changes up frequently, so you will be in for a surprise each time you pay them a visit.

Let’s start with a hot favourite among many Koreans and Singaporeans alike—the Injeolmi Tteok ($5). Just think muah chee, but without the fine bits of crunchy peanuts!

Injeolmi tteok is made using glutinous rice that is evenly coated with soybean powder. Traditionally, this rice cake is given to newly wed couples in the hopes that they would stick together forever, just like the glutinous rice.

If you’re up to try something different, the prettiest of the lot is their Sweet Potato Flower ($5). This rice cake is made with sweet potato flour, and packed with a sweet potato paste. If you love chewy textures, their Sweet Potato Flower is a must-try.

Less known is the Pumpkin Pat Siroo ($5), a rice cake made with short grain rice, red bean, and pumpkin. You get a nice textural contrast between the red bean crumbs, and a creamy pumpkin puree within. I recommend this to those who are not big on sweet things!

There’s also Mujigae Tteok ($5), which simply translates to rainbow rice cake. You get four beautiful layers of steamed rice cake in four different colours: white, purple, brown, and green. 

The white layer is made with rice flour, and the purple with purple sweet potato flour. Then we have the brown layer which includes cinnamon, and the green layer that comprises mugwort. For those who are new to mugwort, it’s a popular herb used in Korean desserts and foods, and is known to be aromatic with a mild grassy flavour.
