In the world of processed manufactured goods with ice creams, Krispy Kreme donuts and cakes topped with colorful icings flying all over dessert shops, more and more Koreans are turning to the O.G. style for dessert, best demonstrated by the resurgence of rice cake cafés across the nation. Called tteok(떡) in Korean, these rice cakes are a popular form of traditional Korean dessert – either made by pounding or steaming rice, and usually sticky and chewy in content. Think of the sticky rice cakes in the popular Korean street food, tteokbokki. Here we have compiled a list of the top five rice cake cafes in Korea for a more traditional experience on your next visit.


01 Damkkot (담장옆에국화꽃)


Located in both Gangnam and Itaewon, Damkkot is the pioneer of Korean style dessert, using both modern and traditional ingredients to make rice cakes. The most popular menu is grilled glutinous rice cake, made out of glutinous rice flour, mugwort powder, chestnut, walnut and pea with a little bit of baking powder.

If all the suggestions above were too traditional, here’s a café founded by two young entrepreneurs that offers fusion rice cakes with witty names. From “Welcome to Osaka” to “Burger in Affair,” Café JAISO offers a unique range of fusion rice cakes by mixing ingredients from all over the world in traditional rice cakes, such as a sandwich-like cheese rice cake topped with nuts, and a plain rice cake with the Japanese takoyaki fillings.
