Best Ddukbokki in Irvine
I haven't been deep enough to know if this is an "all-OC" Brode's Best, but it's a at least the best I've had in Irvine. The Ddukbokki is spicy and sweet at Chan Chan Food House, and is a phenomenal dish, whether you get it classic-style, or seafood-style.
What to order
Chan Chan has great fried chicken and excellent Kimpab, but the Ddukkbokki steals the show. You can get it 10 varieties, but my favorite is the classic "Spicy Ricecake" or the "Squid Spicy Ricecake".
