Ra-bokki is a combination of ramyun (Korean for ramen noodles) and dduk bokki, spicy-sweet and saucy stir-fried rice cakes, two of the most famous and popular Korean street foods. Together, they’re like a little bit of dirty naughty eating for me, which I love.
In a medium saucepan, combine the anchovies, kelp, and 5 cups/1200ml water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer for about 20 minutes. Pass the anchovy stock through a fine-mesh strainer into a large, wide, deep skillet and discard the solids.
Return the stock to maintain a simmer. Add the carrots, onion, garlic, chili paste, sugar, chili flakes, and soy sauce, stir to combine, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cabbage and noodles and simmer, stirring often, until the noodles are slightly softened, about 2 minutes more.
Add the rice cakes and fish cakes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the noodles are just tender and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes more. Drizzle with the sesame oil, sprinkle with the sesame seeds, and nestle the eggs in the sauce.
Serve immediately, topped with the scallions (spring onions).

Tip: You can use any brand of ramyun/ramen noodles, but I’m partial to Shin Ramyun; get the black label if you can.
