Getting into the teenager’s heart and tummy can be tricky. I meant food. Sure, selling some ‘instagrammable’ food (gosh, starting to dislike this word) can work during the initial days, but needing to keep being updated is equally important.

In case you have yet to realise, candy store Sticky has left Orchard Cineleisure, and is replaced by 1460 Tteokbokki.

The Korean street snack kiosk is owned by the same company behind Sticky anyway, Joo Bar and E!ght Korean BBQ.

Going Korean isn’t exactly foreign to them.

1460 Tteokbokki sells a variety of youth-friendly takeaway food items such as Tteokbokki rice cake sticks ($5), Potato Tornado ($3), Korean Fried Squid ($5), Slushie ($3) and Bingsu ($6). Rainbow Bingsu is just out.

The crowd and social media buzz, I have observed, is moderate at best.

Hip food, not overly expensive, centralised location – what’s missing.

Although I am going to sound superficial, I think they need an ‘instagram wall’ and to work on their social media accounts. Just saying.

Retro may work for the the crab ramen shop next door, but I think this place needs a brighter look to appeal to the youths. The ordering system could have been more straight-forward. And where’s the menu board?! Oh, at the side.

I tried the Chicken and Tteokbokki skewer ($4) – not bad, saucy, chicken rather tender, rice cakes could have been softer. But messy to eat, especially when there is only a standing table around.

The Korean Fried Squid ($5 – I requested not to cut it up) didn’t look as big as what some of the other stalls offer, and could have been crispier.

The good thing is, despite being new, the menu has been updated several times. Rainbow Bingsu is on their cards. The question is… what is next then.

  1. The “Rainbow Bingsu” one should be renamed as “Tumblr Style Bingsu” because it looks like galaxy picture that often posted on Tumblr
