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)
