The restaunrant in Samcheon-dong is introduced in magazines and TVs. Its Tteokgalbi attracts many people and make them stand in line for the restaurant to open.
Tteokgalbi is a type of Korean food made from galbi, literally, short ribs. It is believed to originate in Damyang-gun, Jeollanam-do or Songjeong-ri, Gwangju, South Korea. Currently, it can be found all over South Korea. It is made by shaping a mixture of beef and pork into a rectangular appearance then grilled on charcoal. The reason why pork and beef are mixed is that beef alone is too dry, so pork is added to make it more fatty. The leftover rib bones are sometimes boiled to make broth.
