I enjoyed creating this, but it was very tedious and detailed oriented. One of the most difficult things was making sure I didn’t repeat an abbreviation and checking for the correct spellings of all the foods. It was also a bit difficult dividing some foods into their respective categories because some things you could classify as a soup AND seafood (꽃게탕 for example).

I checked over and over for mistakes, but I’m sure there may be a few I still didn’t catch. If I find any (or if you guys find some) I will go back and make the corrections. Also, I know that these aren’t all of the Korean foods and drinks but if I added every food and drink, the table would be even bigger than it is now.

So I basically just tried to name the major foods and drinks.

My favorites? Dak Galbi, Hotteok, Samgyeopsal, Ggaetnipjeon, and Buldak. What are yours?

      Thanks man…about 2 weeks and finishing it up over the weekend while sick (still sick now). Enjoyed making it though.

        Oh! I thought it would be under soup. It’s clearly a soup. Oh well, Thanks for including my favorite Korean dish even if it makes me a (young) ajushi. (Im told kalguksu is “old people food”)

  3. Randy says:

    A version with pictures would be awesome!! Also as someone commented on reddit, 육회 isn’t sea food.

    • Dominic 'Dom' Dinkins says:

      Man I actually wanted to add pictures, but the amount of time it would’ve taken was daunting (at least drawing them)…I may add a version later if I get A LOT of free time. And thanks for pointing that out…will change 🙂

  4. Jack Zilla Lyons says:

    Very cool! One mistake though. 육회 (#24) is raw beef, not seafood.

    • Dominic 'Dom' Dinkins says:

      thanks a lot! I thought you would like it haha.
