When we say “sundae” (with an E) in the Philippines, ice cream comes to our minds first. But the dry season begins to fade away, so here’s another meaning that fits well with the rainy days. In Korea, “sundae” refers to blood sausage which is the main ingredient in its traditional soup called sundaeguk. The Gookbabajeng-I restaurant offers its delectable sundae gukbab dish featuring a combination of sundae (blood sausage) and pork intestine, alongside rice.
