Korean Food: 7 Things I Learned About Eating & Food in Korea

It’s taken awhile to get used to certain Korean foods and customs, but I would say I’m pretty familiar with most things after living here for 6 years. My tastes have changed a lot and I’m starting to like certain Korean food that I didn’t like before.

The last one really relates to me though. In the states we are not THAT enthusiastic abut delicious food. However I a little anxious when I’m eating with Hyo’s fam because they are asking me or telling me every 5 minutes how good the food is and asking me if it’s good (looking for a big reaction). I don’t think I will ever get used to that.

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.

      lol … that’s the reason why you need to learn about a culture before going as much as you can

      This is my in laws ….alll..the….time! I have a box of pears because the grandkids like them (and have gotten sick of eating them because they can only take so much of a food). When I was kindly given a bagel for breakfast before work one day, because I was appreciative and enjoyed it, that was served to me for 6 weeks straight. I can’t even look at bagels now. I am always grateful for what they give us, but my pantry can only hold so much rice, seaweed, chapaghetti and spicy ramens.
