Food Featured in Korean Dramas That You Want to Try

Just like Bollywood, Korean Wave is spreading like wildfire across the world. The number of Korean dramas and show viewers in Indonesia have been increasing for the past few years, and more and more national televisions acquire the broadcast right from the Korean original broadcaster. Korean dramas in particular often involve food scenes, or eating scenes that probably have your stomach growling and mouth watering for the food. Although most are simple, comfort foods, they all look amazing and delish. Especially when set during winter, and the character of the drama is eating something hot while it’s snowing outside. Here are Korean dishes that mostly always appear in Korean drama, and where you can try these in Jakarta:

Kimchi

Kimchi is a side dish that always comes with any kind of Korean foods. It is made from vegetables like Chinese cabbage, radish or cucumber and fermented with sour and spicy sauce. Kimchi is also famous for its health benefits, and one of them is to accelerate your metabolism.

Where to buy in in Jakarta: if you dine in authentic Korean restaurant, kimchi is a complimentary dish. It is also available in major supermarkets like Lotte Mart or All Fresh.

Ramyeon

ramyeon
Who doesn’t like noodles? Ramyeon is just like Indomie or Maggi Instant noodles. What makes it looks more delicious is that in Korean drama, people eat it directly from the small pot that is made specifically for ramyeon. The slurping sound and how they eat it with kimchi are probably the reason why ramyeon looks way more appetizing than regular instant noodle that we know. Where to try it in Jakarta: mostly major supermarkets in Jakarta sell instant ramyeon.

There are many flavors available such as spicy mushroom, seafood, kimchi, and even cheese.

Bibimbap

Bibimbap is Korean rice dish consisting of rice, vegetables, stir-fried meat, egg and gochujang (chili paste). Sometimes bibimbap is served in one big bowl where all the side dishes are mixed in, and sometimes the side dishes are served separately in smaller bowl. Whatever the serving style is, bibimbap tastes amazing when you mix all of the dishes. The more gochujang the merrier!

Recommended restaurants with the best bibimbab in Jakarta:

  • Mujigae, Kemang Village (Lippo Mall) level 3, Jalan Pangeran Antasari Kemang, South Jakarta
