Basically Dakgalbi or spicy stir-fried chicken   is a popular Korean dish generally made by stir-frying marinated diced chicken in a gochujang-based (chili pepper) sauce with sliced cabbage, sweet potato, scallions, onionsperilla leaves, and tteok (rice cake) on a hot plate. Although its name means chicken ribs, there is no rib meat in dak-galbi
It is a local specialty in the Korean city of Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, where dak-galbi originated. Because of its origin, the dish is also called Chunchŏn dak-galbi. It is said that dak-galbi appeared after the late 1960s as an inexpensive anju (food that is eaten while drinking) in small taverns on the outskirts of the city to replace the comparatively expensive gui dishes, which are grilled over charcoal. The dish spread to Chunchŏn’s main districts, where the livestock industry thrives and offers fresh ingredients with no need for refrigeration. There is a street known as dak-galbi golmok (dak-galbi alley) that has a high concentration of dak-galbi restaurants.
It is also a popular dish for university students on a budget, as dak-galbi is relatively cheap and served in large portions. It earned the nickname “commoners’ galbi” or “university student’s galbi” back in the 1970s
