Korean Cuisine

Korean cuisine food


Korean food is some of the healthiest on earth, with an emphasis on vegetables, meats cooked simply and without much oil, and a near obsession with the fermented vegetable kimchi, which can be something of an acquired taste for non-Koreans. The Koreans have perfected the art of preserving food, so many side dishes are picked, fermented or salted and many are spicy.
