I'm going to a Korean restaurant for the first time?!
Thanks in advance!
Korean restaurants will present you with a selection of small dishes as appetizers. This usually includes various pickles, kim chee, maybe a small fish, etc.
Jap Chae - a type of noodle, may also be part of the small dishes they bring to your table.
Bi Bim Bop - hot pot with rice, an egg, veggies and meat. You can eat separately or mix it all up. Hot sauce is served on the side.
Bul Gol Gi - Korean style barbecued steak. Also available in chicken, pork, and spare ribs.
Tofu hotpot - A rich soup with lots of tofu and various other ingredients (depends on the type you choose.)
Korean seafood pancake (I forget the actual name - usually an appetizer.) Looks like a small pizza topped with various vegetables and seafood.
Be sure you indicate the spiciness of your food. Koreans like quite spicy food.
