Top Ten Foods We Loved!

1. Shabu shabu thin strips of beef, vegetables, noodles in a smooth, yet spicy broth. A foreigner favorite. (10,000 won per person)
2. Kalbi This is a famous Korean dining experience. You will bbq either pork or beef, over red hot coals, or natural gas. This tasty option is very popular when beer is being served. (10,000 won per person)
3. Kimchi & Kimchi chiggae The national food might catch you by surprise at first, but most foreigners learn to love it during their stay in Korea. I suggest you try it every time its offered, to help you acquire a taste for it. Kimchi chiggae is a spicy red soup that has to be one the healthier food items Ive ever eaten. (4,000 won per person)
4. Deol-sat bap Rice, mixed vegetables, beans and egg served in a hot stone bowl. Bi bim bap is very similar, but it isnt served in a hot bowl. (5,000 won per person)
5. Kam-ja-tang This potato and pork soup in a brown spicy broth is not only healthy, but very filling. Hae-jeong-guk is basically the same soup, with the potatoes. (3,000 won per person)
6. Kim-bap (California rolls) You can buy these in almost any corner store, and an endless amount of Korean fast food style restaurants. They will have a mixture of egg, vegetables, rice, tuna all wrapped inside seaweed. (2,000 won per portion)
7. Pizza Hut Yes, this was our comfort food during our stay in Korea. Be careful when you order, as certain toppings might not be listed on the menu. Free pickles with every order! (8,000 won per person)
8. Dwaen-jeong chiggae This brown, bean paste soup is simply wonderful. It will have variety of vegetables, tofu and will be served with a bowl of white rice. (4,000 won per person)
9. Side dishes The variety is endless and offers up something for everyone. Try them all to find your favorites. Most restaurants offer at least 4-5 varieties but others can fill up the table with tasty treats.
10. Dokbokki - Korean Rice Noodles. The Korean version of a spicy Kraft Dinner, made with rice noodles in a spicy red sauce. Available on every Korean street corner.
