Gopchang House: (곱창) by Danny Byrnes

|Here's a pile of intestines in sauce|
The large intestines were my favorite, both chewy and salty. The small weren’t my favorite but only because they were slightly too chewy for me, but the japchae noodles made up for that. The sauce is good and its served like many Korean dishes, cooked in front of you on those ubiquitous portable grills. You take bits of gop chang (곱창) and put them between leaves of sangchu and enjoy. We ate it all leaving only a little sauce on the grill—delicious.

Directions: Take subway line 2 (green line) to Wangshimni station (the Wangshimni area being famous for its 곱창). Go out exit 6 and head to the right. Take a left at the Tomato convenience store and go until you see the Gop Chang House (곱창하우스) on the left. Sorry no English on the menu or the sign but just ask for Gop Chang (곱창) and you should be fine. Enjoy!
