''Heotjesa bab'' consists mainly of several types of ''namul'' (young sprouted vegetables) over white rice. It is also served with grilled fish, shark, and ''jeon (jeon (food))'' (Korean pancake). The dish originated in Andong. The term, ''Heotjesa bap'' literally means "dishes for fake ''jesa''" that are ceremonies for death anniversary and ancestor veneration held in Korea. The reason it is considered fake is that it is not covered in incense ash, as would happen to any food sacrificed in a jesa ritual. ''Andong jjimdak'' is a variety of ''jjim'' (a Korean steamed or braised dish), made with chicken, cellophane noodles, and various vegetables marinated (Marination) in a ''ganjang'' (Korean soy sauce (Soy sauce#Korean)) based sauce. The name literally means "steamed chicken of Andong." commons:Andong

Andong

'''Andong''' is a city (Administrative divisions of South Korea) in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, South Korea. It is the largest city in the northern part of the province with a population of 167,821 in October 2010. The Nakdong River flows through the city. Andong is a market centre for the surrounding agricultural areas.

Since the 1970s Andong has developed rapidly, although the population has fallen by nearly seventy thousand as people have moved away to Seoul and other urban centers. In the late 1990s and early 2000s it became a tourism and cultural centre.

Andong is known as a centre of culture and folk traditions. The surrounding area maintains many ancient traditions, so in mid October the Andong Folk Festival is held every year. One of the most famous aspects of these cultural festivities are the Andong masks.

Andong National University, specialising in education and Korean folklore, has grown rapidly since the 1970s. Other tertiary institutions include Andong Science College and Catholic Sangji College.
