Whilst Korea has a variety of notable meals, here is our list of dishes we consider worth trying…
Bulgogi, otherwise known as "fire meat" in Korean, is thinly sliced marinated meat cooked on a very hot surface. But what makes this dish so delicious and addictive? Bulgogi sauce. It consists of soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and sesame oil blended together to perfection. Not to mention Asian pear, another secret ingredient adding to Bulgogi’s special taste. It’s ability to tenderise the meat whilst adding subtle sweetness and fragrance is what makes this dish so memorable.
Bulgogi is savoury, mildly sweet and moreish. A true Korean classic.
Korean Table BBQ
Korean barbecue prizes a balance of different flavours. Imagine being in a small roadside restaurant, the grill is placed in the middle, whilst friends gather around the table. The air is filled with sizzling meat on the grill, causing your mouth to water- this is the atmosphere this dish aims to mimic.
Using fresh lettuce leaves, meat and vegetables guests are able to individualise their own serving, creating their own personalised wrap eaten in one bite! The taste can be described as a combination of savoury, sweet, tangy and mellow flavours. All in all, it’s a meal of sharing and celebration; aiming to bring a sense of nostalgia with each mouthful.
Seafood pancakes are a perfect juxtaposition – a crispy outer layer with a soft interior. The chewy snack serves as a popular Korean appetiser, bursting in flavour with sharp notes of onion and shrimp. Popular variations also include kimchi pancakes.
Typically, this dish is served with a sweet vinegar dipping sauce. Yet the contrast of the sauce with the crispy pancake will keep your taste buds salivating for more.
Banchan (Korean side dishes)
Banchan is a collection of Korean side dishes served during a meal. It’s an adventure of textures and flavours. The most popular side dishes include Kimchi, pickled radishes, beansprouts, lotus roots and cucumbers.
These classic Korean dishes are all available to order from Burgogi meal kits. Enjoy the experience of having a top-quality Korean meal delivered straight to your home.
