Where can you get the freshest meal in Korea? Simple. Korean restaurants.
Korea’s fast food and Western-style restaurants serve familiar dishes: burgers, pizza, pasta. But the nation’s limited farmland makes cow and pig bits scarce. Owners often “substitute” ingredients to save a few won (₩).
Want organic and locally sourced? Search for traditional Korean spots. Dine on almighty kimchi, Korean barbecue, and savory noodles in their purest forms.

₩50,000 for lunch? Don’t worry. We’ll explain.
