Tucked away in the quiet alleys of Seocho-dong, Gaon already has a decade of experience tucked under its belt with its owner Kim Myeong-sook. Kim has won the Presidential Prize at the Korea Food & Tourism Expo and the Gold Prize at the Korea International Cooking Contest. The place is 100% ajumma-certified, and the ladies in this neighborhood are notorious for being fastidious when it comes to pyebaek and ibaji tteok (the Korean traditions of preparing special food gifts from the bride to the groom). Gaon scores a 10 out of 10 in all three categories of authenticity, aesthetics and taste. Made only in small batches, all of the tteok sells out daily. The red bean and peas tteok is Gaon’s number one seller.
