Types of Food in Korean

We will probably be doing a few more graphics on food and drinks in the upcoming weeks. Here are the words in this infographic:

우유 (u-yu) = milk

고기 (go-gi) = meat

과일 (gwa-il) = gwa-il

계란/달걀 (gye-ran/dal-gyal) = egg (there is no difference between the two words except that 계란 is formed from Chinese characters and 달걀 is pure Korean)

소금 (so-geum) = salt

치즈 (chi-jeu) = cheese

빵 (bbang) = bread

샐러드 (sael-leo-deu) = salad

야채/채소 (ya-chae/chae-so) = vegetables (like the words for egg, these have no difference except that 야채 is from Chinese characters and 채소 is from pure Korean)

Also notice that many food words in Korea are Konglish so they can be easy to recognize and understand for beginners.

Also remember that romanization is only a tool. Try not to depend on it too much. Learning the Hangul alphabet is the key to success!
