Seoul Eats Meet-Up this Saturday for New Year's Rice Cake Soup

I hope everyone is having a great New Year. In Korea it is customarily to eat Rice Cake Dumpling Soup (Tteok Mandu-guk). Eating the dish is supposed to bring good luck and it means that you are officially a year older.

So this Saturday, we will be going to Koong, a famous rice cake dumpling restaurant. This week we will also be joined by 2S2 (Second Saturday at 2pm): A community building organization.  This group meets on the 2nd Saturday of every month at the Twosome place in Insadong to meet up. I really feel groups like 2S2 are needed in Seoul and we should support them, because they are helping to build a better community in Seoul.

So this weekend we will be meeting at Anguk Station Exit 1 at 12pm and then head over to Koong Mandu Restaurant for Rice Cake Soup.

At 2pm, people can join the 2S2 group at the Twosome Place for coffee and dessert. They will also be doing a book exchange, so you can bring a book as well.

Please send me an e-mail to RSVP. Here is my e-mail address.
