Korean BBQ – get pork not beef. Beef is expensive in Korea and not prepared very well. Once you order the type of meat it is accompanied with some sides (we went with locals, so we did have a little help with the ordering, but every restaurant may be different). When you have finished with the meat make sure you order some rice, they cook it on the hot plate that the meat has been cooking on, so it picks up all the spices and flavours.

Bibimbap can be ordered cold or hot. It is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with vegetables and chilli pepper paste, soy sauce, or a salty soybean paste. A fried egg and sliced meat. The dish is then stirred together just before eating.
Korean Noodles are served in a very strong garlic broth (not that we’re complaining). The soup consisted of pork dumplings, some herbs and and thick white noodles.
Pomegranate juice – it’s very very sweet but delicious and can be found mostly sold by little street food vendors.
Soju is a local spirit in Korea. It is distilled, vodka-like, rice liquor. It has a smooth taste which makes it easy to drink. It also goes well with many Korean dishes
