<ul><li>Makchang Gui </li></ul><ul><li>Makchang (abomasum) goes better with soju than it does with rice. From the early 1970s in the Daegu region, the fourth stomach of a cow, hongchang, was cooked over a briquette or charcoal fire to be eaten with special soybean paste sauce with garlic and chopped chives. As a low-fat high-protein food, the calcium content is much higher than regular beef, making it good for the growth and development of children. Makchang is especially popular in Daegu and it has spread to other regions where you can also enjoy pork makchang now. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Ttaro gukbap </li></ul><ul><li>Ttaro gukbap is the only form of rice in broth introduced in Daegu, about fifty years ago. Ttaro gukbap originates from giving bap (cooked rice) and guk (soup) separately. Unlike the other region’s soup, the green onion and white radish is put in a meat broth made by simmering beef leg bones and shins all night long, along with lots of red pepper powder and sliced garlic to make it spicy and hot with a refreshing aftertaste. It is the most famous traditional food of Daegu that represents Daegu’s ‘hot and spicy’ taste. This dish was enormously popular among refugees during the Korean War. The main characteristic of Ttaro gukbap is that it is a compromise between thick beef soup and hot spicy meat stew. </li></ul>
