Make Tteok Guk for the new year!

Korean new year food tteok guk 미국 설날 명절 음식

Tteokguk is a traditional Korean food rice cake soup which has been enjoyed on a new year holiday. Tteokguk (Korean rice cake) symbolizes prosperity and longevity, which is why it has been enjoyed on a new year holiday. Koreans often ask “did you eat tteoguk?” On a New Years day as a new year greeting to commemorate a new year and that you are a year older. Tteokguk features a savory and flavorful broth with chewy rice cakes. It's an easy-to-make and healthy food option. The soft texture of the rice cakes blends harmoniously with the fragrant broth, creating a unique and deep flavor. The rich taste of the meat and the chewiness of the rice cakes come together to provide a warm and comforting sensation, especially during the chilly winter, making it a dish that spreads warmth throughout the mouth.

So why don’t we all get year older after eating Tteokguk?
