Have you ever traveled somewhere and wanted to order a food on the menu. Sure, you can point and ask for that item. Why not ask for it in the Native language? You will look like a superstar to your friends and it will show that you have respect for the language and culture.
The Korea’s Favorite Foods App will help you understand what the favorite foods are. You will not need a Native Korean speaker to get around with a few basics. Although a friend is helpful - as they can read the Traditional Korean writing and help you locate a food or direct you to the location the food is at.
Enjoy the many excellent foods of Korea.
