Korean food key
« on: April 06, 2011, 12:52:21 pm »
Does anyone have a document that lists Korean food names with what is in them along with the hangul? I rarely eat Korean by myself because I haven't a clue what's available or what's in it.

I would love to see something like this:
Dakgalbi (then the hangul): description of the food/dish and what's in it and where it's generally found (street, restaurant, bar, etc.).
Bibimbap: etc
Kimbap: etc.

I've looked for a guide to this but no luck. If anyone has a file like this or a link to a site with this info, that would be awesome. I am missing out on so much food-wise.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but it's something.

Here is something that might help - click on the red category and there's a description as well as the hanguel.  FYI - Some of the descriptions aren't completely correct, and they don't include anything from Chinese restaurants.

Again also helpful. Thank you! keep the suggestions coming. I know there a lot of wonderful dishes I can eat that are not super spicy.  :-)

Seoul Eats came out with a pretty useful app:

You can even put what you're in the mood for and it will suggest something.
