How to eat Samgyupsal: Daegu dropwort and Samgyupsal! Ultimate spring delicacy.



Samgyupsal is the most popular type of meat that Korean consumes. Expats and tourists also love grilled crispy samgyupsal. Many of them already know they need to wrap a piece in a cabbage with a bit of soy bean paste to get the great taste of it. What a lot of people don’t know is, however, the combination of samgyupsal and Daegu dropwort! It’s oh-so delightful food experience with unique fragrance of dropwort enhancing the overall tastes to a different level! It's spring only delicacy! 


Where can I find Daegu dropwort AND Samgyupsal Places?
There are mainly two dropwort(minari 미나리) areas: Palgonsan Mountain and Hwawon area. Both of them are near Daegu’s popular tourist attractions. One thing you need to note is that farms sell only the dropwort and side dishes. You should bring your own Samgyupsal! BYOS!

How does it work?
Basically, you order dropwort by bundle. Usually, people order a bundle of dropwort, which is enough amount for a group of people to eat with Samgyupsal. The server will bring side dishes and utensils for you. You pay for the side dishes by the number of people in your group! The side dishes include garlic and ssamjang(soy bean based paste) Some farms sell everything you need even samgyupsal. So make sure to ask them which things they sell before you decide to take a seat and order! Bringing samgyupsal will give your more options to choose from, though!
