PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Meaningful traditions are often a big part of what makes the holiday season so special. In this week’s HolidayFest-style Taste With Tori, I visited the SouthGate, a Korean gastropub where time-honored family traditions have helped lead to new beginnings.

In the air swirling around the cold noses are the warm, delicious smells that we recognize and the bright twinkle of family traditions. In South Philadelphia at SouthGate, a non-traditional Korean gastropub, you’ll notice plenty of creativity.

But what is not lost in their tasty creations is the family recipes at their core.

Watch the full Taste With Tori at SouthGate in Philadelphia above.
