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?
Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly to have an easier time learning Korean.
