7 Things About Korea: Food

I spoke at length earlier in the week about the fantastic street food options that are on offer in South Korea, but there's a world of flavors inside as well. From the signature bulgogi to more exotic items such as ddok galbi and the infamous boshintong (dog soup) - there's something for most every palette in the Land of the Morning Calm.

 

When people think of Korean cuisine they generally think of either kimchi (spicy fermented cabbage) or bulgogi, which is a marinated beef usually cooked BBQ style but used in everything from pizza to hamburgers. I've tried it in both its traditional BBQed form and in a kind of stew that was poured over rice. The last of these tries were done at Everland though, so I doubt it was an authentic representation of the dish.
