Myeongdong District @ Fortune Centre, Middle Road – Authentic Korean Street Food That Doesn’t Burn A Hole In Your Wallet

The K-wave is showing no signs of slowing down, with various Korean-themed eateries and Korean-inspired cafes popping up as of late. If you’re craving an authentic Korean street food experience, Myeongdong District – not to be confused with the iconic shopping and fashion belt – recently set up shop in Fortune Centre


Like its neighbours, Myeongdong District sports a barebones interior with cozy tables set amidst a bright orange backdrop. A K-pop track playing in the background would definitely add to the “Korean street food stall” atmosphere. The eatery cum takeaway kiosk is operated by a pair of young gentlemen who prepare every dish to order.

Update June 2020: 1460 Tteokbokki has closed.

If there’s one thing I miss the most about my summer stint in Korea as a student, it’s got to be walking along the busy, neon lit streets with a piping hot snack in hand – ok, let’s be real here, I always miss the food most in every country I visit.

ANYWAY. I was psyched to hear that a Korean street snack shop had opened in the heart of Orchard Road, at Cineleisure. Helmed by the same team behind Joo Bar, E!ght Korean BBQ and Sticky, 1460 Tteokbooki is a casual takeaway snack shop that specialises in various renditions of tteokbokki, as its name suggests!

So intense is its flavour, that people worldwide have challenged each other to finish one serving in the shortest time possible… or finish it at all.

Hmm, fire noodles, ALS ice bucket – why do most viral challenges these days involve hurting ourselves physically in one way or another?
