Join us at Sujis Korean Grill to celebrate the Lunar New Year!
We have prepared a special menu of traditional dishes by our Chef Jai Wook Shim (we will also have a Vegan Mandoo Guk for the first time). Even if you celebrated on the 1st of the year do not miss the chance to do so again with us at Suji's!
Seollal is known for its large feast of traditional Korean food. One of the main dishes during this holiday is tteokguk. Tteokguk is a soup made of beef, vegetables, egg, and rice cakes. According to Korean traditions, this dish is supposed to promote longevity through life-extending properties.
Galbijjim is another dish commonly enjoyed during Seollal. Galbijjim are beef short ribs that are steamed and sliced into small pieces and cooked in a pot of soy sauce, pepper, sesame oil, scallions, and sugar. The dish is slow cooked so that the meat is tender and full of a savory flavor. These dishes are sometimes paired with three-color namul, a popular Korean vegetable dish. While the exact composition of the dish varies depending on area and preference, the three-color namul is made up of three vegetables that are colored green, white, and brown.
