Far-Out Korean Rice Cakes
Chichi Wang reviews two New York rice cake dishes, and is completely baffled by the addition of cheese in one dish.
But taken together, the dish was just extraordinarily strange. Halfway through the meal, the layer of cheese cooled, congealing into a sort of lid that refused to budge from the top of the skillet. I plowed on nonetheless, and attempted to extract a rice cake or two from its cheesy tomb.
