Five Things You Didn’t Know About Korean Food

But Korean food is not all about bbq and kimchi. There are plenty of fascinating, little known facts about hansik, aka Korean cuisine.

  • Food is medicine 
  • Rice is nice
  • All in one
  • No gravy train but banchan aplenty
  • No sweet conclusion

 

Do you know that Korean restaurateurs are obliged to ply diners with endless servings of banchan (side dishes) as long as the latter’s bowls of rice remain unfinished? This is because leftover rice is seen as a tell-tale sign that the food served hasn’t meet the customers’ expectations, hence the restaurateurs must coax them into finishing it with more banchan.
