Janchi Guksu

Janchi Guksu

Nothing beats the feeling of warm comfort food. ☺️ Janchi guksu translates to “banquet” or “feast noodles”, as it’s traditionally served during celebrations. It’s simple and made with just a few ingredients - vegetables, eggs, anchovy broth, and somen. You can adjust the toppings to whatever your liking is. However, the most significant ingredient is the somen noodles which are long and thin, symbolizing long life. There’s no better wish for a loved one than that! ❤️
