Korean cuisine has gained widespread popularity across the globe for its delectable flavours, wide range of ingredients, and creative cooking techniques. These are five of the most popular Korean dishes that you should try:
Kimchi is often hailed as the national dish of Korea. This fermented vegetable dish is seasoned with a variety of spices, such as chilli pepper, garlic, ginger, and more. Napapa cabbage and Korean radishes are the most popular ingredients.
Bibimbap translates to ‘mixed rice’, and is a visually stunning and delicious dish. Usually, it is made up of a bowl of steamed rice with a variety of colourful and tasty toppings like fried or poached eggs, sauteed veggies and meat or tofu.
Clams, egg, and soft tofu in spicy broth? This stew is a classic example of unexpected flavor combinations tasting great.
Bulgogi, which translates to ‘fire meat’, is a well-liked Korean barbecue dish. The meat is usually marinated in a sweet and savoury sauce made with soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and various seasonings.
Koreans use Chinese noodles to make a fatter, sweeter variant that is only vaguely similar. (Consider New Yorkers' pizza innovations.)
Tteokbokki is a beloved Korean street food made from chewy rice cakes (tteok) cooked in a spicy and slightly sweet gochujang-based sauce. It creates a symphony of textures and flavours when combined with fish cakes and hard-boiled eggs.
Kimchi can be used in a variety of derivative meals, which are a separate category.
