- Craving for that hearty chicken noodle soup that your mama used to make? Then treat yourself with a bowl of Sujebi, clear soup with wheat flakes (imagine Wanton soup), it will fill you right up.


ow and when Sujebi was invented is not very clear. It is merely known that Sujebi stems from Kalguksu, Korean traditional noodle soup. It was during the Koryeo dynasty period (935~1392) that Koreans started to eat noodle. Making Sujebi is identical to that of Kalguksu except that Sujebi is made with flakes instead of noodle. Depending on what is mixed in to the dough, Sujebi can be categorized as wheat, buckwheat, sticky rice, potato, acorn, or barley Sujebi.

You could also name sujebi according to the ingredients of soup stock as seaweed and anchovy. It tastes the best when eaten hot and is famous for making people sweat. Suitable side dishes include young radish kimchi as well as regular Kimchi. Hot pepper dipped in soybean paste also goes very well with Sujebi.
