Sundae (Korean pronunciation: [sʰundɛ], also romanized as soondae) or Korean Sausage 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 since long ago.[when?] The recipes related to sundae can be found in Joseon cookbooks published in 19th century such as "Gyuhap chongseo" and "Siuijeonseo".[1]

Sundae can be made with seafood such as ojing-eo sundae (오징어 순대 squid sundae) and myeongtae sundae (명태 순대 Alaska pollock sundae).[1]

The most common type of sundae is made of pig's intestines stuffed with cellophane noodles (dangmyeon), barley, and pork blood,[2] although some variants also contain perilla leaves, scallions (pa), fermented soybean paste (doenjang), glutinous rice, kimchi, or soybean sprouts. It is a popular street food in North Korea and South Korea. In Seoul, there is a neighborhood called Sundae Town in Sillim-dong, which has many restaurants specializing in sundae.[3]

South Koreans usually eat sundae with tteokbokki sauce. Many restaurants have a menu item called "tteok-twi-sun"(떡튀순, which contains tteokbokki, fries and sundae).

Each variety of sundae 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 sundae filling.
