korean food / seoul / The taste that comes to mind when it rains, Maseong’s bedae-mochi restaurant – 1763

When it rains, the
food that comes to mind is definitely
When I want to eat a bed bug cake, the sound of falling rain is similar to the sound of a sizzling bed bug rice cake cooking.
Bedbug mochi is a dish made by adding pork, bean sprouts, green onions , etc. to a dough made by
mung beans and pouring
it in oil. As the
popular lyric “If you don't have money, go home and eat a bedbug cake or Buddha” shows, it was a comforting food that appeased the hunger of the common people in their poor days
. Various theories have been handed down
about the origin of beddae-mochi
. Once upon a time, when meat was placed on sacrifices, rice crackers were used as a base. After the ceremony, poor people shared rice balls that were used as pedestals. The most
theory is
that it comes from the rice cake of the poor, or “empty rice cake.
Korean soul food that goes great with makgeolli. Here are some memorable flavors that come to mind on a rainy day, and Masung's Seoul bedae-mochi restaurant.
