Typical food and drink in South Korea
The flavours in South Korean food tend to be heavy handed, so if you don’t like spice or garlic, it’s best to specify that when placing your order. Nearly all meals are served with rice, although often noodles are used instead. There’s plenty of options for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Some specialities to try on your visit include Bibimbap, a boiled rice dish served with vegetables, chili, meat and egg, and Kimchi, a side dish consisting of fermented cabbage, turnips, onion, fish, red pepper and chestnuts.
