Beyond KBBQ: Common Korean Foods

Korean Food

Korean BBQ has taken the US by storm, and for good reason: it’s amazing! However, there’s a whole world of Korean food outside of BBQ. Let’s learn about some common Korean dishes!

Bibimbap

Bibimbap is a simple but delicious meal: white rice topped with sautéed vegetables, fried egg, and gochujang. It’s colorful, healthy, and contains a wide variety of different flavors to dazzle your tastebuds!

Tteokbokki

Tteokbokki are Korean spicy rice cakes. The soft, chewy texture pairs well with the heat of the chilis in the sauce. Make sure you have some water on hand when you eat this one!

Jjajangmyeon

Jjajangmyeon is another classic Korean favorite. It’s noodles topped with black bean sauce, pork, and zucchini. This one is sure to satisfy even the biggest of appetites!

Budae jjigae

Budae jjigae, or “army stew,” is a Korean hot pot dish with spicy chili broth, ramen noodles, Spam, sausage, tofu, kimchi, mushrooms, onions, and cheese. It’s a hearty stew meant to fill you up and keep you warm.

Mandu

Mandu are similar to gyoza and potstickers: tender dough wrapped around a meat or vegetable filling, dipped in a dipping sauce. This dish makes a great appetizer.
