Tteokguk is a traditional Korean dish of rice cake slices, beef and egg drop soup. It is traditionally eaten on Korean New Year as it is believed to grant good luck for the year.
Tteokguk is traditionally served on New Year's Day. The origin of this custom is unknown, however in the 19th century book of customs it is mentioned that it is customary to have a bowl of Tteokguk in the morning of New Year's Day to kick off the New Year with something wholesome, healthy and nutritious.
