It is one of the ten dishes selected as '10 flavors of Daegu'.
The sweetness of soft galbi covered with spicy sauce inside the antique nickel-silver pot is peerless. The spiciness would be lessened if you wrap the galbi with Baek-kimchi (Non-Spicy Fermented Cabbage) which comes out as the side dish.
