A recent Seoul City survey of nearly 4,000 people revealed that most tourists believe Korean food is the city’s main attraction, and with good reason. Korean food is not merely served as one dish, but rather as a collection of tasty meals and side dishes for friends and family to enjoy together. It is plentiful, diverse, rich in flavor and interactive.

A typical meal can include vegetables, rice, Kimchi and sizzling barbecued beef, pork and chicken. Kimchi pancakes are also a favorite. You’ll find fish and shellfish on the menu as well, largely due to the oceans bordering the peninsula. Mackerel, hairtail, croaker and the Pacific herring are popular choices and are often used in hearty soups and stews. So dive in and take your taste buds on a journey not to be missed.
