'Byukje Galbi'
 Serves Best Beef Ribs and Other Dishes

Try Korean Beef in Authentic Restaurant
Each country raises different breeds of cows, and some breeds are more dominant than others. In such countries as America, Australia and New Zealand, the Angus breed is dominant. In Japan they have their own native cow breed, usually called, in English, 'Japanese Cattle'. And Korea also has its own native cow breed called, in Korean, 'Hanwoo'. The first syllable 'han' means in Sino-Korean 'Korea' and 'woo' means 'cow'. Usually the name of this Korean native cow breed is translated into English as 'Korean Cattle'.
A Korean restaurant chain called 'Byukje Galbi'serves sogalbi (grilled beef ribs), seolleongtang (soup made with beef and a cow bone stock), and naengmyeon (cold noodles) in Sinchon, Seoul, and in 9 branches throughout the country. All these dishes are made by chefs with over 30 years' ex-perience. And, since the opening of the main restaurant in 1986, the sogalbi and seolleongtang have been made using only ribs and meat from Hanwoo. This restaurant has been selected as one of the best Korean restaurants by the Seoul Metropolitan Government.
