    Hola!!!…amazing blog! I’m a mexican girl totally in love with korean food ^^
    I already cooked bibimbap and 애호박전 taking by reference your instructable blog; I surprised my family and boyfriend with Korean food and now they love it too.
    I would like to try cooking 떡국 I just love it!!!. Unfortunately rice cakes are not available in Mexico, and I was wondering if there’s any way to make rice cakes by myself?
    Thanks 4 sharing your delicious secrets with us.
