Chodang Sundubu Tofu
Chodang Sundubu Tofu Village is widely known for its Tofu-making.
Under the reign of King Gwanghaegun of Joseon, Heo Yeop, the provincial officer of Samcheok, ordered his people to make Tofu with the clean sprint water that sprouted in front of his house and season the product with the clean sea water.
It is a typical environmentally friendly and clean healthy food.
As the delicious Tofu made through the process became famous, Heo named the Tofu Chodang, his penname. It is still the representative dish in Gangneung with special soft texture.
