Top 5 Korean foods - Help please
« on: May 16, 2011, 11:54:21 PM »
Hi Folks,
I'd like to ask your help for a lesson. I'm doing a "Top 5" kind of game with my kids to see what they think are the top 5 Korean foods liked by Westerners. Now I know what my top 5 favourite Korean food is, but I don't know what others like. This is where you come in...

Could you please list your 5 favourite Korean foods in order of preference, 1 being the best and 5 the lowest on the list. It will be interesting to see what everyone likes, and who knows, maybe I'll find a new food worth trying.

My Top 5 Korean Foods:

1. 탕수육 Tung Su Yuk
2. 비빔밥 Bibimbap
3. 돈까스 Donkasu
4. 볼고기 Bulgogi
5. 감자탕 Gamjatang

1. Jjajang Myeon (Korean / Chinese Fusion)
2. Bibimbap
3. Jock Bal (Roasted Sliced Pork Leg w/ Lettuce leaves for wraps) 
4. Tong Su (Sweet & Sour Pork)
5. Mandooguk (mandoo soup)

These are my top 5 and they are all very close. I could eat any of these almost every day of the week. Gimbap, Donkasu, Bulgogi, Samgyupsa; and Bokeumbap (fried rice) fill out the top 10 and these are also close, but the top 5 that I listed are for sure the best.

Not all my personal favorites but for the average foreigner? Perhaps.....

Galbi
Dolsot/chamchi bibimbap
Ddak galbi
Japchae
Pajeon

There were some others mentioned in the thread but some are *not* Korean......donkkasu, tangsuyuk, jajangmyun for instance.

I can hear them now, "Teacher!  Tangsuyuk is Chinese food!"


Yes it is. And I dare say, Donkasu and Jajamyeong probably shouldn't be on the list either (although I think there is some debate about the last one) but hey, I've never had it in any other country, so I'm claiming it as Korean. :D

Thanks everyone for your input. This is a great list.

What I mean to say is, tangsuyuk is most definitely Korean food.  Jajangmyeon is as well.  These foods are so thoroughly bastardized that they have little resemblance to their Chinese roots.

Donkkaseu is kind of on the line.  It's originally Japanese (via Portugal) but I'm not sure if it's been bastardized enough to truly get its own distinction as Korean food.  Then again, that sloppy mess server at Kimbap Nara is probably not the most authentic representation of Japanese food.
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me.
