âDuruchigiâ is a dish where meat, seafood, and vegetables are put in a pot, stir-fried until sweet, then poured in a little water and boiled on their own. You can think of it as a dish in the middle of stew and stir-fry because it is simmered as if it were stir-fried while broth is present. Turuchi is often confused with stir-fried meat and steamed pork due to the reddish sauce and ingredients it contains. There is plenty of soup in duruchiki, which is boiled, but there is a big difference between cooking methods such as stir-frying meat stir-fried with marinated meat, and jumuluk, where meat mixed with seasoning is grilled over charcoal.
Daejeon, which is known as the town of duruchigi, emphasizes the cool flavor of squid and tofu as the main ingredients. In the Gyeongnam region, you can enjoy the hot pot style by preparing a variety of ingredients such as bean sprouts, beef, and mushrooms, and in the Gyeongbuk region, pork is the main ingredient, showing a hot sauce flavor. In this way, dollop appears in various forms in different regions according to the environment, adding to the fun of picking and eating. With its addictive sharpness, it's all in one fell swoop!

1. Hot condiment that enhances the taste buds, 'Gwangcheon Restaurant' in Seonhwa-dong, Daejeon

âKwangcheon Restaurantâ has been passed down from generation to generation for about 45 years. They have been specializing in local foods representative of Daejeon, such as duruchi-chi and kal-guksu noodles. The signature menu is âsquid turugi,â made by thickly sliced squid boiled in anchovy broth and stir-fried with red pepper powder and green onions. The visual combination of plump squid and bright red sauce enhances the taste buds to the fullest. Every time you chew the thick-cut, chewy squid, the spicy flavor spreads intensely, creating an addictive flavor. Another delicacy is to remove the squid and add kishimsu sari to the leftover soup and grate it. The seasoning penetrates intensely between the chewy noodles, adding a spicy flavor.

â²Opening hours: 10:30 â 21:30 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Squid roll 20,000 won, pork (small) 18,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami #í¼ìë°¥): This is one of the local restaurants in Daejeon. There are a lot of TV shows up, and many outsiders come here, but the elderly in the neighborhood often go to this steamed restaurant! The squid dumpling is spicy enough to make you sweat, but it's not irritating, and it's delicious. Even chewy boiled meat tastes like honey when eaten with garlic and red pepper!
2. The sweetness of onions adds flavor to Gwangmyeong's 'Pork House Tsurugi Specialty Store'

The âPig House Dumpling Specialty Storeâ cooks using domestic ingredients and 130 meters underground natural bedrock water. It has a large space from the 2-story main building to the annex located opposite. The signature dish is âwhole pork turugi,â which is pork topped with lots of onions. You can put the kimchi that comes as a side dish on a sieve and cook it quickly, then reduce the heat and simmer until the onion dies. The soup, which combines the flavors of various ingredients, such as the sweetness of onions, the aroma of pork, and the freshness of kimchi, boasts a deep flavor. If you order duruchigi, you can enjoy the stone-grilled rice served by scooping out the rice and pouring water into it.
â²Location: 56 Kia-ro, Gwangmyeong, Gyeonggi
â²Opening hours: 08:30 – 23:00 every day, 7 days a week
â²Price: Whole pork roll 18,000 won, hand tofu 3,000 won
â²Testimonial (Midnight Meal): I was a little worried because they didn't use broth and boiled it with raw water, but it was nice that the soup wasn't thick. The meat that kept coming out even after eating was just right to go with the broth. It was flavored with onions, so it wasn't irritating overall, so I felt comfortable even after eating it.
3. Gangnam Station, a mecca for office workers, 'Tsubori, raw pork, and kimchi'

âTasbori, raw pork, and kimchi stir-fryâ is responsible for lunch and dinner for office workers in the Gangnam Station area. It offers a variety of dishes, such as grilled, rolled, and steamed domestic pork as the main ingredient. The signature menu, âRaw Pork Kimchi Stew Style Turuchiki,â is characterized by the fact that it is steamed and served with plenty of soup. As the soup boils, the flavors of ripe kimchi and fresh raw pork blend together to complete the rich flavor of the soup. The chewy, crunchy pork and soup that combines just the right amount of acidity and fat fill the filling. If you're a little disappointed with just throwing it over, you can add sari such as tofu, mushrooms, ramen, and vermicelli to add a hearty touch.
â²Location: 180, Saimdang-ro, Seocho-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:00 – 00:00 every day
â²Price: Raw pork kimchi stew, tofu, 8,000 won, omelette 8,000 won
â²Testimonial (shikigin hamstubaragi): There are only three side dishes: bean sprouts sauce, stir-fried fish paste, and kimchi side dishes, and it's the best combination with tofu without any frills. I ordered it as a stew-type tofu, but the meat in it was raw, so it didn't have any residue, and the texture was soft and kept on coming in. I was only going to eat one bowl, but I overate two!
4. Intense spiciness spreading, Icheon 'Original Dinner'

â²Location: 8, Jungnicheon-ro 31beon-gil, Icheon, Gyeonggi
â²Opening hours: 08:30 – 22:00 every day
â²Price: Pork roll (small) 20,000 won, pork roll (medium) 30,000 won
â²Testimonial (you're craving sweet crab): If you don't eat spicy food, you should definitely order something less spicy. It's no joke that the spiciness makes you sweat when you eat the original flavor! When I eat it frantically, I think it's a magical flavor that comes back to mind when I get home… hehe, meat is a rice thief if you dip it in the skewers that come as a side dish and eat it with rice.
5. Mullae âEunjin Pochaâ made with the freshest ingredients of the day

âEunjin Pochaâ opens its doors by preparing only enough ingredients to be sold on the same day. After selecting ingredients from a refrigerator full of fresh ingredients such as octopus, oysters, and meat, you can choose cooking methods such as grilling, steaming, stewing, and sashimi according to your preferences. The signature menu, âDuruchigi,â is eaten by mixing large pieces of pork in a sauce sauce and frying it in a pan with onions and green onions. Pork, which has an appropriate ratio of fat and lean meat, is seasoned all the way to the inside, so you can feel the moist texture of the meat. You can just eat the lightly shiny, ripe duruchiki, but I also recommend adding rice or putting vegetables such as garlic and red pepper on the lettuce and enjoying it as a wrap.
â²Location: 20, Dorim-ro 133-gil, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 15:30 – 00:00 every day, closed on Sundays
â²Price: Surugi 15,000 won, flounder 30,000 won
â²Testimonial (Weird Food, Girl): Depending on the ingredients that come in that day, there are things you can't order from the menu, and there are foods you can order that aren't on the menu. Turuchi has just the right seasoning, so it's perfect for a drink. The grilled flounder is savory, the bottleneck is delicious, and overall, the boss has excellent food skills, so it's delicious no matter what you eat!
