Here are a list of Korean dishes I have tried and have photo evidence of! I am aiming to try everything while I am here in Korea! I'll update this as I try things :]! Enjoy!
Bulgogi. Thinly sliced grilled marinated beef.
Dwaeji Galbi. Pork ribs marinated. You get a rib, and attached a long bit of meat which you grill and cut up.
Samgyeopsal. Unseasoned pork belly. Very common and delicious. Sometimes it's cut for you, other times you do it yourself.
Dak Galbi. Stir fried marinated chicken. Gochujang sauce. Various vegetables, cabbage, onions, tteok (rice cake).
Makchang. Grilled pork large intestines. Served with deongjang (a certain sauce). My favourite dish so far in Korea!!
Saeng Ori. Fresh duck, grilled on the BBQ.
Really thick seasoned fatty pork! it is delicious!
Hanoo beef! Similar to wagyu steak. Check out the marbling!
It was expensive, 70,000 for 400g.
Dak Bal. Chicken feet! I'm not new to chicken feet because I used to eat it all the time with my Chinese family. These were spicy! And also had no bones.
Hunjae Ori. Smoked Duck.
This is so good, you grill it lightly and it tastes just like bacon.
Jokbal. Sliced pigs trotters. Sounds minging but it's beautiful!
Tonkatsu. Similar to the Japanese version Tori Katsu. Battered pork! Sometimes by itself. Sometimes covered in cheese with a nice sauce and served with cabbage.
Bossam. A cut of pork belly. Usually served with kimchi, oysters etc.
Yuk Hoe. Raw sliced beef. The second photograph tasted so much better! Amazing! If you love blue steak, you'd love this!
Bulgogi. This is one of my favourite dishes here in Korea. It's made using beef. It's delicious and it's becoming more popular in the west.
Tofu, pork and kimchi. It's so good, one of the best foods I have had here in Korea. It's got a sweetish taste.
Stir fried pork with various vegetables. Sometimes, it can be spicy, depending on where you order it. I love eating this on top of rice (제육덮밥 - Jaeyuk Deop Bap)
Don't know it until you have tried it. There are various kinds from raw to cooked. This one was the sashimi version, and it was divine, the meat was so soft.
Black pig, common in Jeju. More expensive than normal pig and it tastes the same!
Grain Dishes/Noodle Dishes
Bibimbap. Mixed rice. Rice topped with various vegetables, sometimes meat and egg too. Served with a helping of gochujang, red pepper paste.
San Chae Bibimbap.
Mountain bibimbap. This form of bibimbap is usually sold near mountains. They use mountain vegetables. Usually the rice is served separate. I love this bibimbap because I hate mixing my rice!
Kimbap. A snack, similar to the Japanese sushi roll but less "posh". It's considered a picnic food and it can range in filling. You can get it filled with tuna, vegetables, ham, radish..etc.
Naengmyeon. Cold noodles. There are various versions. It's served cold. Sometimes with loads of ice, sometimes with crushed ice...the soup base is made out of meat stock.
Japchae. One of the most common foods here in Korea for lunches and picnics. Glass noodle stir-fry! So simple, yet so delicious.

Haemul Ddukbaegi. Seafood hotpot. Various seaood with abalone, mussels clams etc in a spicy soup.
Sundubu Jiggae. Uncurdled tofu, various veggies, meat with gochujang or gochujaru. Such a good meal!
Gamgyetang. Spicy pork spine soup. It's really good. Amazing for when you're sick!
Shabu Shabu. Korean style hot pot.
Cook the meat and vegetables in the soup.
Dubu Jiggae. Regular tofu stew. I don't like this dish so much.
the meat was like lamb! The broth wasn't well seasoned though.
Gul Sun Dubu.
Oyster tofu stew. Delicious.
Mal Galbi Jjim

The smell is a bit off putting due to the spices they used, but it was delicious! The meat fell right off the bone! You can also get a beef version.

Bone Marrow Soup
Jeju Haemul Tang
Spicy seafood stew, with whole crabs.

Ggomak, Ggomak bokkeumbap!
Cockles! And Cockles fried rice!
Raw octopus. You can get two kinds. Whole LIVE octopus! You eat it while it's alive and wriggling or...they kill it for you. Don't be fooled though, the tentacles will still be wriggling and the suckers still work!
