Daegu JJimgalbi : spicy steamed ribs
Since 1970, this has been a dish unique to Daegu with ribs cooked in a worn out aluminum pot along with spicy powdered pepper and chopped garlic. This dish is completely different from the steamed short ribs seasoned with soy sauce that is served in other areas. Its special feature is the tongue-tingling, burning taste it offers when enjoyed with Soju (hard Korean alcohol) or rice mixed with leftover spices. Unlike steamed ribs from the Seoul and Gyeonggido areas, its spicy-sweet taste that can set your tongue ablaze is unparalleled. It first appeared on a residential street in Dongin-dong, Jung-gu in the early 70s', which has blossomed into a village of local food establishments.

Daegu Ttarogukbap : rice served with a separate bowl of spicy beef soup
For over fifty years, Daegu was the only area with the habit of eating rice and soup separately as other regions have customarily mixed rice in the soup. ‘Ttaro’ means ‘separate’, and ‘Gukbap’ means ‘soup and rice’ in Korean, so that ‘Ttarogukbap’ as a compound word means ’rice and soup served separately’. This dish has an unrivaled after-taste that seems spicy as well as refreshing with leek and radish cooked in a soup of beef shank, and plenty of powdered red pepper and chopped garlic. It is the epitome of the unique ‘spicy and burning' taste found only in Daegu. In particular, during the Korean War, it was immensely popular among refugees from all over the nation. Ttarogukbap is unique in that it is a mix between Gomguk (thick beef bone soup) and Yukgaejang (spicy soup of chopped beef with various condiments).
