About a hundred meters away from the Central Rotary in front of Chuncheon City Hall is Chuncheon’s famous Myeongdong Dak-galbi (spicy stir-fried chicken) Street. The street was formed in the late 1950s. In the early days, the chicken was grilled on a gridiron over a charcoal fire. However, the current form, which looks and tastes slightly differ from its origin, of dak-galbi where chicken is stir-fried with vegetables emerged in the 1980s.

The appearance of this dish on television made Chuncheon dak-galbi famous across the country. With the rise in international tourists visiting Namiseom Island recently, a growing number of tourists from Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, and Japan have visited the Dak-galbi Street for a taste of this scrumptious dish.
