  • One of Andong’s traditional dishes is Heotjesa bap, "dishes for fake jesa“.  Jesa are ceremonies held for memorials and ancestor veneration. Dating back to the Joseon Dynasty, scholars and wealthy families wanted to eat delicious foods but did not want to arouse jealousy. Fake memorial services allowed them opportunities to eat good foods without inviting criticism. Hutjesa bab consists of namul (young sprouted vegetables) over white rice with soy sauce. It is also served with grilled fish and some jeon (Korean pancake).
