Located near centum city in Hongdae(Hongik University Street), the center of business and culture of Seoul, Gangsu Gopchang is a designated exemplary restaurant. Only the most strictly selected ingredients are used and only Korean beef tripe are used as the main ingredients. The premium tripe has outstanding texture and is highly nutritious.

Gopchang refers to either a dish of grilled intestines of cattle or pork in Korean cuisine[1] or the intestines themselves. In the latter case, gopchang is commonly referred to as such because of its curvy shape[2] rather than as sochang (소창), which literally means "small intestines." It is the counterpart of daechang (대창), meaning "large intestines." Compared to other cuts of meat, gopchang is high in iron and vitamins. It is relatively inexpensive and has a characteristic flavour and a chewy yet palatable texture.
