TWO unique local foods in Seoguipo are Kkwong-toryeom (Sliced pheasant meat boiled lightly with vegetables) and Kkwong-memil Guksu (Buckwheat noodles with pheasant meat). Since there are many pheasants on Jeju Island, there are many different foods made with pheasant meat. Pheasant in autumn is regarded as a real treat, and can also be eaten raw or as a jerky. ‘Kkwong-toryeom’ is eaten in a hotpot style with thin slices of pheasant heart. ‘Kkwong-memil guksu’ mixes Jeju buckwheat noodles and pheasant stock to create a special flavor. ‘Kkwong-memil guksu’ is seasoned with a variety of sauces after Jeju buckwheat noodles are boiled in pheasant stock. The buckwheat creates a light and easily digested meal. Pheasant dumpling soup is not greasy and tastes delicious.
