For centuries, the Koreans have eaten the product of the sea, the field, and the mountain because of the components of the Korean peninsula and a recognize atmosphere makes Korean food more abundant. Korean foods are extremely unique, exotic, and accurate. The most different part of the Korean food is the spiciness. The fundamental seasonings-red pepper, soy sauce, green onion, bean glue, garlic, vinegar, ginger, mustard, sesame, wine have been consolidated in different approaches to improving Korean foods.

Korean food has the different small dish. Most loved small dishes are bean taste soup, fish, seared beef, steamed vegetables and cabbage “kimchi” the full course Korean feast “is called “Hanjeongshik.”It is made out of steamed short ribs, flame broiled fish, and other meat and vegetable dishes with cooked soup, rice, and “kimchi.”

“Kimchi” is the best known Korean food. It is a vegetable dish, profoundly prepared with garlic, pepper, etc. It is presented with each sort of Korean suppers, and it fortifies the hunger like pickles. Substantial amounts of “kimchi” are made in late fall or early winter for the winter. The making as of now is called “kimchang.” “kimchi” contains measures of healthy nutrients, for example, vitamin C, and fiber.

Koreans also like meat dishes. It is one of the well-known dishes to Westerners. “Pulaski” is for the most part called “Korean grill.” It is marinated in a sauce made with sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and different seasonings, and cooked over a fire before the table. For the other extraordinary food, “Galbi,” the short ribs of meat or pork is also good. The formula is like “Bulgoki.”

Soups, “guk” and “Jjigue” in Korean vary in taste and power. Through the history, the soup culture was created because of the starvation or icy weather. When our progenitors were shy of food, they made soup with a little measure of vegetables and hamburger bones. Also, the hot soup could assume a part in ensuring the cool. “Maeuntang” is spicy, hot seafood soup that incorporates white fish, soybean curd vegetables, red pepper powder. “Deonjang-guk” is a fermented soybean glue soup with child shellfishes in its stock. For the soups, there are different sorts of soups, for example, “miyok-guk”,”kimchi-Jjigue.”

Korean table settings are classified into the 3-“cheop,” the 5-“Cheop,” the 7-“chop,” 9-“cheop,” 12-“cheop” setting as per the quantity of small dishes served aside from soup, rice, and “kimchi.” The normal family takes three or four dishes. At the point when a family hold festivities or gathering, a dozen or more delightful dishes are served. Korean food is shared by burger joints in one table, except rice and soup. Every one of the dishes but hot soups is set at one time on a low table at which burger joints sit to eat. Chopstick and spoons are used for eating. Different from Japanese and Chinese, Korean use all the more thin chopstick made of metal, not wood.

For the most part, the Korean diet uses much grains and vegetables which include fiber and protein from both vegetables (bean curd, bean glue, bean sprouts, soy sauce) and meats.

The Korean diet is changing, and the Korean food industry is creating as quickly as the speed of prepare. Even, however, the Western style and fast food diet are increasingly acclaimed in Korea as far as interest and convenience, the fundamental diet remains.
