KOREA LOVE MORE TRAVEL THE WORLD

Korean cuisine – from street food stalls to fine dining restaurants

02/11/2019

After returning from the trip to Korea, I asked everyone how they felt about Korean cuisine, and everyone complimented it, and I could simply summarize in a word – “delicious”. This album is where I recorded all the food I tried, from street food stalls to fine dining restaurants. Below the photos are the captions! If you have the opportunity to come to Korea and don’t know what to eat, just open the photos in this album, all Koreans probably know  

Besides, you can see more articles about Korean cuisine of mine here: Korea

In Korea, it’s easy to come across this type of food street stalls, especially at night. When we were in Korea, it was the end of spring but it was still very cold, groups of young people were hanging out on the street, standing around the street food stalls, eating and talking happily. There are often fish cakes, rice cakes, spicy noodles, gimbap, and some fried food in these street food stalls.

These were spicy rice cake and fish cake. The taste depended on the place. I ate at 2 places, in which one place served plain cakes and another place served slightly salty cakes. If you see a food stall with many Koreans standing to eat, just come in!

Fried chickens sold on the street were kept in cute cups like this.

Spicy noodles. In the bowl of noodles, there were only noodles, bean sprouts, and chives. Kimchi was put in the dish to serve as a side dish. I ate with my friend. Too spicy!!!

A street corner in Busan had an outstanding street food stall.

These are grilled corns and peas, served with fresh seafood in Jeju.

This dish was simple, extremely easy to make but delicious. Fragrant and sticky rice grains when still hot were mixed with sesame seeds, chopped dried seaweed, and a little salt.

The fish hotpot was cooked simply with fish bones (of course there were still some meats in the head and tail after cutting out some fish fillets to eat raw), leeks, and chrysanthemum. The taste of the fish was a little strong, but it was delicious to eat in cold weather.

Along with Japanese domination in the Korean and Taiwan Peninsulas, sashimi also became popular in these places. In Korean, sashimi is called hoe!

This is a stone oyster. Its meat is tough. You eat it raw like that!

This dish was my favorite: crab sauce! Quite similar to “ba khia” in Vietnam but the taste was light, not too salty and made from sea crabs.

Soup with fresh seaweed, very simple and delicious!

Wow, this rice bowl makes me salivate: rice mixed with pumpkin and abalone.

This cake was made in the shape of Hallasan Mountain, a famous volcano in Jeju.

The cake part was slightly dry. I didn’t like the taste of the cake but I liked the shape of the cake because it was a typical part of Jeju.

Emperor crab grilled with garlic and olive oil, a small portion but it was excellent. After finishing eating, I still felt I wanted more but it was just enough for me not to be fed up by protein excessiveness ^_^

I did not research well about this egg roll dish. It might have been initiated from Japan?

The hotel staff was standing and making gimbap, sushi and egg rolls.

Steamed egg!!!!! My favorite food!!!!

Vermicelli mixed with vegetables, delicious and refreshing.

Hanu beef grilled with wine at Bamboo House, Seoul.

Super delicious clam bean paste soup.

Cold noodles. Simple material. The broth was very rich and had a slight pear aroma.

Busan snow crab, super yummy!!!!!!

This was a pruned crab section for guests.

The kitchen team were pruning snow crabs after steaming.

The kitchen team were pruning very professionally, their hands were working fast!

Before we ate crabs, we ate light food like this.

And we ended the snow crab meal with a super delicious crab hot pot!

This was a zucchini pancake, which was said to be a familiar dish in Korea.

Grilled offal! Oh no, I don’t want to describe anymore, because I am going to salivate right away if I describe something T_T

The left bowl was water kimchi. If you want to read more about kimchi, please visit this link: http://nhacohainguoi.com/en/the-cabbage-kimchi-the-root-of-memory/
The bowl on the right was pumpkin soup – appetizer. The first time I ate, I thought it was not good but it turned out to be very delicious!

If you’ve ever seen Korean movies and seen people eat fried chicken, fried fish, potatoes and beer, so here it is!

Going to a restaurant to eat fried chicken with French fries and to drink beer is also a Korean culture!
