Korean food is abundant in Singapore, but it’s peculiar how there’s a lack of freshly-made Korean desserts here, apart from bingsu and fatcarons (aka fat macaons).

If you’re missing the songpyeon you tried in Korea, and have been searching high and low for non-prepacked ones to no avail, perhaps your answer lies in The Songpyeon House. This small local business creates traditional Korean rice cakes with a modern twist, in the form of fun colours and special designs.

For the uninitiated, you can think of songpyeon as Korean mochi. Made using rice flour, it has a chewy and slightly sticky texture, and is often eaten during Chuseok - which is the equivalent of Korea’s version of Mid-Autumn Festival.

Traditionally, songpyeon is shaped into small bite-sized crescents, and stuffed with sweet fillings. The Songpyeon House in Singapore does it that way too, but with a fresh spin. Instead of the standard colours like white, green, and yellow, they make theirs in pretty pastels like baby pink, purple, and sky blue. They’ve even done a gradient design before!

Once moulded to perfection, these chewy delights are topped with mini flower-shaped cut-outs made from the same flour for extra colour and cuteness.

In addition to that, they’ve also experimented with different shapes like flowers and mini florets. The flowers are plain, and come with honey for drizzling, while the florets (pictured below, extreme right) are made “open-faced” with premium red bean paste.

There are also round songpyeon designs with various embossed or imprinted floral designs. Pick from peanut sesame, chocolate chips, or a mixture of both as fillings.

If flowers are not your thing, you can always request for customisation, which may come with an additional fee depending on complexity. They previously made some round songpyeon with simple heart-shaped imprints - perfect as a gift for your loved ones, or even as wedding favours!
