Saranghae: Top 4 Korean Restaurants To Visit
Prepared largely based on three main ingredients of rice, vegetables and meats, a traditional Korean meal consists of a main course and a variety of side dishes with kimchi, served alongside a bowl of steaming hot rice.
Modern Korean food has also seen a surge in popularity and is one of the fastest-growing culinary trends worldwide, with one of the classic examples being the Korean fried chicken.
Korean fried chicken – also known as K-Fry, is now a modern staple, with the concoction originating from American troops stationed in South Korea during the Korean War. Head over to Gami Chicken or Kyochon 1991 to enjoy the best of K-Fry.
