Uri Pungcheon eel is a representative eel restaurant in Gochang where you can enjoy luxury eels comfortably in a spacious interior.
EEL: it can be said that all eels depend on sea life. Most eels do not travel long distances but hide among cracks in rocks or caves or crawl under the sand.
The investigation into how they live, where they lay eggs, and what life they live is still under way until now in 2019, which is why it is hard to find conditions to raise, and is also famous for being difficult to cultivate.
The current method of catching and cultivating fry is that only a small number of eggs survive and grow into fry, so the price is also expensive due to the lack of suppliers, which is showing signs of gradual resolution over time and technological advances.
The signature menu is grilled salt one, where you can enjoy the original taste of eel. Uri Pungcheon eel is captivating customers with its taste of an eel that has no smell and a firm and bouncy texture. The secret of taste lies in its unique recipe. Instead of using fresh-water eels, they use so-called “sunchi eel” that they grow in seawater for a week.
As the environment of the water changes, eels move actively to survive, which results in foreign matter being released out of the body and the quality of the flesh becoming stronger. Another secret is the biscuit firing.
