deep appreciation for the well-prepared meal…and travelers see the food is a major reason to visit the country. there are countless types of foods in Korea. Here are my top 8 must-try specialties.

The pear-soy marinade it’s slathered with is super sweet, slightly salty, and always addictive.

Yukgaejang

Don’t worry, yukgaejang is not as spicy as its scary red color might suggest.

In fact, it’s considered a comfort food and is a staple dish in every Korean home.

Think of this as the Korean version of late night pizza. Filled with either beef, pork,

seafood, or kimchi, as well as tender tofu, this spicy dish is a go-to order to after a night of heavy drinking..

Gim

You’ll find a basket of salted seaweed in every Korean household.

It’s a staple side dish, but also makes a great snack and meal on-the-go when paired with rice.

Bibim Naengmyeon

Beware of the noodles: they’re extra long and a known choking hazard!

Bulgogi

If you love meat, but also have a sweet tooth, this one’s for you.

Doenjang Jjigae

Okay, I know it’s not much to look at, but this umami-rich soup is actually really good.

It tastes kind of like miso, but with a few slices of chili pepper and zucchini thrown in for extra savoriness.

Seolleongtang

This soup’s milky flavor is derived from ox bones boiled over 3+ hours.

A pinch of salt and pepper brings out the savory taste.

Literally translating to “mixed rice,” this simple dish will make you want to devour all of your vegetables.

It’s served with a dollop of chili paste you mix into the dish before eating, and almost always with a sunny-side up egg.

Kimchi

This stuff is as essential as bread and butter.
