Jjimdak is a very popular dish in Andong. It is comprised of chicken, glass noodles, potatoes, carrots, and onion. I haven’t read anything interesting about its origins, so there really isn’t that much to say about it (except that it is delicious). As I stated in a previous post, Andong is known for its chicken dishes. This is in part because of its strong religious ties, but it also may have to do with its location. Andong is farther inland than all of the other cities that I have studied, meaning that fish is probably less accessible to this city. This, paired with the fact that Buddhism and Confucianism have historically limited the consumption of beef, makes it understandable that Andong is known for a chicken based dish like jjimdak.
