South Korea Foodies Adventure

South Korea 

8 Days, 7 Nights

Long overshadowed by the gastronomy of its regional neighbors, Korean food has been the cuisine on all foodies’ lips in recent years. There’s Korean BBQ for starters – what’s not to like about sizzling your own strips of meat on a BBQ set up on your table? – but that’s just the tip of the culinary iceberg. With a smorgasbord of sauces, garnishes and pickled side-dishes accompanying every meal, dining in Korea is all about crafting your meal to taste. And, despite the prevalence of beef and Korean fried chicken, it’s not all meat based. Silky tofu, glass noodle salads, sushi-like kimbap, and, of course, kimchi – vegetarian options are plentiful. Learn how to make green onion pancakes, slurp up spicy seafood breakfast soups, tuck into Buddhist fare on an overnight monastery stay and delve into the intricacies of the country’s signature dish bibimbap in Jeonju, arguably Korea’s foodie capital.
