Soondae (also sometimes spelled sundae) is a Korean dish made generally by boiling or steaming cow or pig's intestines that are stuffed with various ingredients. It is a kind of blood sausage and believed to have been eaten for a long time. The recipes related to soondae can be found in Joseon cookbooks published in 19th century such as "Gyuhap chongseo" and "Siuijeonseo".
The most common type of soondae is made of pig's intestines stuffed with cellophane noodles (dangmyeon), barley, and pork blood, although some variants also contain perilla leaves, scallions (pa), fermented soybean paste (doenjang), glutinous rice, kimchi, and soybean sprouts. It is a popular street food in North Korea and South Korea. In fact, there is a neighborhood called Soondae Town in Sillim-dong that has many restaurants specializing in soondae.
Each variety of soondae follows either the originated region with a different recipe or the wrapping. Gaeseong soondae shows the former case, originating in Kaesong while ojingeo soondae takes its name from the ingredient which wraps soondae filling.
