Yang + Daechang


at Obaltan

-Nonhyeon, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-

with W and DJ, the In-Laws, Brother-in-Law’s family

On W’s birthday, we went to her favorite restaurant.

Yang (양) is beef tripe.  Specifically, it’s the rumen, the first stomach, also referred to as “blanket/flat/smooth” tripe.  In Korea, yang is usually scrubbed clean and marinated in a soy-based dressing and grilled over coals. Raw, it has the look and feel of raw chicken breast; cooked, it turns firm and chewy, maybe a bit rubbery, somewhat like cooked squid.  Although yang that hasn’t been properly processed or stored can give off a stinky odor, yang done right shouldn’t really taste much like anything beyond the marinade – it’s more about the texture.

Happy birthday, W!
