Ansan : Oritang 오리탕

소담골 오리마을 - 오리탕

4th December 2012.
Ansan, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.
While I was in Korea I realized beef and pork are the meat staples here. Chicken is normally in fried form and duck is in smoked form. Hence, when I spotted oritang 오리탕, also known as Duck Soup, I was tempted to try it. Oritang 오리탕 is apparently a specialty of Gyeonggi-do province as well as Jeollanam-do. The soup was prepared by simmering duck slowly with vegetables. Some articles described it as a clear soup but at 소담골 오리마을 it was has red chili powder and roasted perilla seeds added into it. The result is a slightly thick and hearty stew with tender duck meat in it. It was mildly spicy and a little sourish.

Along with the soup there were also banchan such as quail eggs and picked vegetables to go with the rice and oritang.

The restaurant is located along the road leading down to a church near the river, on the Mr Pizza side. While there are no English menus, there was a lady who could speak Mandarin. The oritang cost 6000 KRW.
