Jaws Food

Location: Franchise
Cuisine: Bunsik (Korean snack food)
Price: $
Reservations: No
Suggested Items: Ddeokbokki (chewy rice cakes), Twigim (fried stuff), Kaetnip Twigim (Deep fried stuffed perilla leaf)

The legend goes that the founder of Jaws Food knew nothing about making ddeokbokki. So he dedicated every day to perfecting a recipe. The ddeokbokki is deep and spicy. The twigim is light and stays crispy after a while. This is a simple stop for a snack. Too bad they don’t open late.

  1. It’s cheap, but I don’t think Jaws is particularly good anymore. It’s expanded crazily so it’s everywhere in Seoul. I find the tteokbokki sauce to be too thick. Becomes unappetizing after a while.
