Cheorwon - Local Delicacies

  • Cheorwon Pork Ribs

    A person visiting Cheorwon should try this rare food. It is Cheorwon Pork Ribs, and its inclusion of wasabi makes it different from those of other regions. The combination of pork ribs and wasabi sounds like an awkward union, but it gives an unique and savory flavor, solidifying the food as a must-item for tourists visiting Cheorwon. It is easy to assume wasabi used for pork ribs comes from Japan, but it is a home-grown product. The fact that it is locally produced in Cheorwon makes it more special.
