Handmade knife-cut noodles boiled thoroughly in anchovy brot
Nureun guksu
: Daegu-style noodle soup
This noodle dish is representative of Daegu, the city with the highest consumption of noodles and wheat flour in the entire nation. Daegu is the only area with noodle dishes that use broth made by simmering anchovies in water. This broth differs from Andong Geonjin Guksu, which uses soy sauce in the broth without other ingredients, but the noodles of both dishes are made by mixing an appropriate amount of soybean flour with wheat flour and rolling the noodles thin and wide. In essence, geonjin guksu and nureun guksu are similar types of noodles, but when preparing the final dishes, the noodles of geonjin guksu are drained and washed with cold water and served with a garnish, whereas nureun guksu is boiled in broth and served as is. Nureun guksu is another name for kalguksu, which is a handmade, knife-cut noodle dish from Gyeongsang Province that uses a unique broth made only with anchovies, without beef or other seafood ingredients. It was very popular in the 1960s and 1970s, when the government promoted it in an attempt to reduce national rice consumption. At one time, the backstreets of Migliore were renowned for handmade knife-cut noodles, and there were other popular combination menus, such as one bottle of soju (hard Korean alcohol) with amppong (pork blood sausage dish), which was great on a cool night.
