Hello Kitty tteokbokki at 7-Eleven
Snacktime gets a Sanrio upgrade with 7-Eleven‘s all-new Hello Kitty instant tteokbokki, six months after their Kakao friends edition that came in jjajang sauce, and just shortly after 7-Eleven introduced their range of ready-to-eat Korean food.
Retailing islandwide at all 7-Elevens, the Hello Kitty instant tteokbokki comes in two flavours—Cheese, and Spicy. Both are priced at $3.90 a cup, and are while stocks last. Each cup comes with adorable Hello Kitty prints, so you can wash and keep them after you’re done with your tteokbokki, perfect for die-hard fans to add on to 7-Eleven’s earlier launch of limited-edition Sanrio pouches and accessories.
Not only are the cups emblazoned with the iconic kitty, the tteokbokki is also loaded with dehydrated slices of fishcake, each piece a Hello Kitty head!
Simply add in the sauce packet and Hello Kitty fishcake, fill each cup with boiling water up to the indicated line, cover, and pop it in the microwave for three minutes while the tteokbokki cooks. It’s as easy as preparing cup noodles, fuss-free, and cute to boot.
Of course, you can always go the extra mile and zhng-up your Hello Kitty instant tteokbokki. Top it up with Hanjuku eggs, garlic chicken sausages, or even ready-to-eat chicken breast, all available at 7-Eleven.
Alternatively, simply top your cup of tteok with a slice or two of cheese. It’s an extra shot of cheese in the Topokki Cheese, or an indulgent add-on to the Topokki Spicy—perfect for those late-night supper cravings while you watch your favourite K-dramas.
Another snack you could consider is Samyang’s new Spicy Four Cheese ramyeon, although this can only be purchased via Shopee. Otherwise, if you live near Punggol, there’s a newish Korean smashed burger joint, BBBurgers, which blew us away with their Korean-fusion burgers.
