Dak-Galbi (닭갈비) @ Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant
Had a chance to taste this Korean food at Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant at Solaris Mont Kiara. I tell you even they are only selling 1 kind of main dish, Dak-Galbi (닭갈비), which is chicken, be it spicy or non spicy, it’s really awesome!
Uncle Jang serves Dak-Galbi (닭갈비) also romanized dalk galbi, is a popular South Korean dish generally made by stir-frying marinated diced chicken in a gochujang (chili pepper paste) based sauce, and sliced cabbage, sweet potato, scallions, onions and tteok (rice cake) together on a hot plate. It is a local specialty food for the city of Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, where dak galbi originates. Because of its origin, the dish is also called Chuncheon dak galbi.
It is said that dak galbi appeared after the late 1960s as an inexpensive anju (food that is eaten while drinking) in small taverns, on the outskirts of the city to replace the rather expensive gui dishes which are grilled over charcoal. The dish has spread to the main districts of Chuncheon, where the livestock industry thrives and soldiers who serve their military service frequently visit on leave.
It is also a popular dish for university students who are on a low budget, as dak galbi is relatively cheap and served in abundance. It earned the nickname “commoners’ galbi” or “university student’s galbi” back in the 1970s.
The city of Chuncheon has held an annual autumn festival dedicated to dak galbi since 2005.
