Food Tour 2017: April

For the month of April, we pay homage to some of the Korean dishes–authentic dishes we’ve actually tried in Seoul and in Busan. Since language barrier can be one of the challenges in exploring Korea, you may want to keep these dishes in mind or show them the photo when you order, as the menus are usually in Korean. There’s no harm in asking if they have the English version of the menu, just politely ask and don’t forget to smile and bow as you say, “Kamsahamnida!
