Wangsimni Gopchang Street,

Gopchang, which refers to the intestines of cows and pigs, is a typical food for ordinary people with high amounts of protein and iron. 

In the past, Wangsimni was a typical residential area for ordinary people. 

People who were not able to eat meat began to enjoy high-quality Gopchang at cheap prices, leading to a series of restaurants specializing in gopchang restaurants.

  1. Gopchang, which refers to the cow’s small intestine, tube-shaped, elastic-fiber-rich delicacy. In Korea, it is used to make gopchang jeongol, gopchang BBQ, and gomtang, which are eaten a lot as a meal.

    In Western countries, it uses not only cows but also sheep intestines, which are rarely eaten in Korea, and are used throughout the world for sausages, soups, stews and barbecues.

    It is rich in iron and vitamins compared to other lean meat, and has a unique taste and texture. However, due to the smell of the internal organs and the texture of the gopchang, the like and dislike are divided.

    Because it is easily damaged, it is also a big difference between the taste of a well-managed restaurant and a house that are not properly managed.

  2. Gopchang is the word referring to the large intestine of a pig. The word was used to refer to the small intestine of a pig, as was the case with a cow, but the Pig’s small intestine is thin and difficult to cook in other forms, and is used mostly as the outer covering of sundae.

    Thanks to Sundae, it is hard to access food made of pig’s small intestine. The pig’s large intestine which has become more accessible through stir-fried dishes, has been named Gopchang.

    As the area is a part of a pig’s feces (the passage through which pig feces are made), the unique smell is very strong, so it is hard to remove the odor completely.

It uses fresh ingredients to make it easy for even the gopchang beginners to enjoy it. 

Spiced gopchang with the secret sauce of those houses are also excellent. 

After eating the gopchang, Stir-fried rice that is fried with the remaining oil in the pan is also a delicacy to taste.
