You may have noticed that we love all things Korean at Cactus Pop. Korean dramas ( K-Dramas to Watch on Netflix, Romance is a Bonus Book Recaps ), Korean music ( BTS ) and of course Korean food! With an impending trip to South Korea on the horizon, I have been dedicating quite a bit of time to researching all of the Korean foods to try (or in the case of some of the weirder dishes, foods to avoid! Wriggling raw octopus is a hard pass).
While I have been learning Hangul (the Korean alphabet) in preparation for my trip, I’m only in the early stages of learning the language and am by no means fluent (or even able say much more than hello, thank you and water in Korean).
One of my concerns is that when I get to Korea I won’t be able to remember what the Korean name is for the food I want to eat. So here you have My Ultimate List of Korean Foods to Try in South Korea! It has both the Korean and Romanised names for dishes to ensure that I will be able to muddle my way through eating all the things.
