Dookki tteokbokki debuted its first U.S. location in Houston in the summer of 2023 and introduced a fresh twist to a beloved Korean tradition. Hailing from a renowned global chain with over 350 establishments, the heart of Dookki's allure is its innovative take on tteokbokki, a classic Korean dish featuring chewy rice or wheat cakes simmered in a delectable blend of spicy and sweet sauces, vegetables, and other flavorful elements.
The cornerstone of this experience is the 90-minute all-you-can-eat concept, which offers a diverse range of options beyond the customary tteokbokki. Picture a buffet teeming with fried delights, perfect for dipping and indulging – from crispy fried chicken to sweet potato cakes. As if that weren't enough, Dookki elevates the experience by introducing a cheese dipping sauce, adding an extra layer of creaminess to the mix.
The name "Dookki," meaning "two meals" in Korean, hints at the dual culinary journey the restaurant offers. After savoring the rice cake and noodle-filled soups, a new adventure begins. For those who appreciate pacing themselves, Dookki presents kimchi fried rice, a flavorful masterpiece cooked at your table using the remaining soup broth. This final touch ensures a meal that's not just filling but truly satisfying.
Patrons can also explore the ramen bar and indulge in the bulgogi station, a testament to the restaurant's commitment to culinary diversity and innovation.
