Samgyetang (삼계탕) is Korean’s traditional ginseng chicken soup. It is a healthy food which is made of a whole young chicken, ginseng and other herbal ingredients. It is also known as a popular summer tonic.

There are sambok (삼복) which are the hottest period in Korea’s summer season.

They are:
~ Chobok (초복)
~ Jungbok (중복)
~ Malbok (말복
)

It has been a traditional culture in Korea where Koreans will eat Samgyetang (삼계탕) as tonic food during summer season. It is because they want to have a rest and build up their health stamina by taking tonics during the hot summer period (삼복).

As it is the summer season now, don’t forget to try Samgyetang (삼계탕) as an experience for Korean traditional food culture! ^^
