Rice Cake Gift Box

I received an unexpected gift at work from some Korean vendors:A box of Korean rice cakes or tteok!
Of course I sampled everything right away. I took a few bites of each one. Because the texture was gummy and dense, it was difficult to eat much more. The pale orange one tasted like fresh pumpkin, mildly sweetened. The second one tasted like rice seasoned with soy sauce. I did not care for it.
The third one looked unappetizing but tasted wonderful. Mashed black beans surrounded a tender, rice cake center. A few green peas added color and a mildly sweet flavor.


This multicolored, dense rice cake was bland and extremely gummy. I spit out my bite. Maybe it would be better with a sauce?

And, finally, my favorite cake: coconut covered sweet rice cake with red bean filling. Delicious!

It's too bad you weren't able to try the rice cakes. We simply had too many things to sample!
