Tripe Fried Rice at Gyodae Gopchang!

Friday, November 05, 2010

Gyodae 교대(Seoul National University of Education Subway Line 2 and 3) has some excellent eats. Now this is partly because it is across from one of Korea's most prestigious universities. Oh! and don't get Gyodae and Seoul-dae confused. They are both on line 2 (the green line) but they are very different. Gyodae is right next to Gangnam station and Seoul-dae is farther down the green line next to Nakseongdae.

The most famous restaurant there is Gyodae Gopchang. Gopchang is beef intestines. Now, there are many imitators, but there is only one true one. Look for this sign:

 What you'll find here is amazing tripe and sweetbreads (heart, stomach, liver). The tripe is grilled before you and the oil that comes out of the meat are expertly sopped up with paper towel so the tripe stays crisp yet chewy.

It's amazing.

Also after you eat the tripe, they take the leftovers and make tripe fried rice! Trust me, you won't have a better fried rice.
