About

Welcome to The Korean Food Project.  I’m so glad you stopped by.

When I first moved to Korea, I wanted to try out as many different Korean foods as possible, but knowing where and what to eat was a big challenge.  I was eventually able to enlisted the help of a growing circle of local Korean friends, but for a long time I pretty much just walked blindly to many, many Korean restaurants and pointed to the pictures.  By the way, because Korean food is so consistently good, this is not such a bad strategy if you’re willing to give anything a go.

I hope that if you’re visiting Korea for the first time, that you’ll find the information here to give you confidence to try all sorts of different Korean foods and enjoy a most excellent culinary adventure while you’re in Korea.

I set myself I pretty big challenge to eat and video 101 different Korean foods.  You’ll these under the 101 K Food Challenge section.

There’s also some helpful quick guides under the, well named, helpful guide section.

And lastly, we post a lot on social, so follow along on Instagram and YouTube for bountiful Korean food inspiration.

If you have any questions about Korean food or can’t find what you’re looking for, we’d love you to get in touch.
