1. Gopchang and Makchang (곱창-막창)

Gopchang and makchang are food made by intestine part of cow and pig, original food in Daegu. So if you are Muslim, then you may to choose the cow part. Gopchang is small intestine, makchang is the final part of it or called the abomasum. There are two types: grill and soup. But I recommend to try the grill one. What is the difference with samgyeopsal or other grill then? Mhmm, the taste and also the sauce!

Because gopchang and makchang are popular in Daegu and Gyeongsan Area, we have Gopchang Street which is called Anjirang Gopchang Street, located in Anjirang St. line 1. But, you may try it  everywhere in Daegu.
