Big Korean Food Map/List

Korean Food Map


So as you may or may not know, I already made a graphic about Korean food in the form of a periodic table last year. Now while that covered a lot of food, it really didn’t scratch the surface (as I found out while making this one) so I wanted to make a new one covering as many as possible.

This Korean food map/guide took a lot of research and I’ve probably put more hours into this one that any one before it. I was also craving food while making it. I couldn’t believe how many foods I’ve never even heard of and I still don’t think I got them all. I’ll probably do a revision later on as even though I double and triple checked it, I may have left some mistakes and left out some well known foods. Click for a closer look and go try some of ’em out.

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 and you will have a much easier time learning.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters

    I found a spelling mistake- 된장. Check your picture. There is missing ‘ㄴ’ for 된장.
