Or, in English, “Happy New Year!” (basically)

The traditional soup to eat on New Year’s Day is Rice Cake Soup, which helps you become a year older (since everyone gets older on New Year’s Day, don’t you know). However, Rice Cake Soup is somewhat lacking in delicious-ness, if you know what I mean. If you’ve ever eaten homemade play-doh, you DO know what I mean– just imagine it in boiling water. Yum! So, this year, try this Chinese version of a Korean favorite instead:
Mmmm… that’s right. In just three minutes you can have a nice steaming bowl of dog ramyeon. Don’t you just wish there were a Chinese grocer near you?
