Favorite Korean Dish

Updated on September 23, 2015

Dakgalbi (닭갈비)

This is a longtime favorite of mine after living in Seoul for two years. It is a spicy dish that is made by marinating small chunks of chicken in gochujang. It also has cabbage, scallions, onions, perilla leaves, cheese, and rice cake/tteok. Sometimes they also add bits of sweet potato as well. The menu will have many variations you can choose from. The preparation and use of ingredients may vary depending on which province you visit in South Korea. For example, the dakgabli in Seoul is slightly different than the kind you would receive in Chuncheon. So just be aware of this if you order this dish. It's also good to be aware that if you dislike spicy food, then this dish may not be for you.

If you make your way to South Korea then you may see a restaurant by the name of 유가네 (Yooganae). Personally I have eaten at this chain restaurant many times all over the city. You can find all locations for the restaurant via Google search. Here is the location in the major shopping district of Myeongdong.

Directions: Go to Myeongdong Station, come out exit 6, walk straight one block, turn right at the first corner. The restaurant will be on your left next to the GS25. However you can also take the routes from exit 5 and 8. Please see the photo below.

      I have always found it interesting to see cooking styles from around the world. The use of different spices and seasonings, and the varied ways in which the same things are used, have always been interesting to me. Thanks for sharing!
