Gangneung Chodang Dubu Village (초당두부마을)



Just south of Gyeongpo Beach is Chodang Dubu Village; which is famous for tofu. Along Gangneung's most famous food street the beans are ground for Chodang tofu, then through several steps, salt water from the East Sea is used in the congealing process resulting in a soft and light tofu.

The name of this village, Chodang, originates from the name of a famous person that lived here known as Chodang Heo Yeop. When Heo Yeop was a minister in Samcheok, he made a tofu with sea water of Gangneung and people complimented on tofu’s plain and savory taste. That is how it was given a name as Chodang, which is Heo Yeop’s pen name.
