The Korean Food Bucket List: 10 Delicious South Korean Recipes


Grace Moser

Korean food has so many good ingredients, spices, and textures. It really is a wonderful cuisine that makes for an incredible night out or in.

And there are so many different ways you can experience it!

You can have Korean BBQ where they cook your meat in front of you and bring out a whole bunch of tasty side dishes. You can order one of many different types of hearty savory soups. Or you can just order a ton of different dishes and dig in with some friends, family style!

And if you’ve been curious for awhile, then I think you’ll like this Korean Food Bucket List. You can check things off as you go and make it a fun way to experience a new type of food!


If you’ve had kimchi before, but weren’t crazy about it, then I’d definitely experiment!

Not all kimchi is the same.

There are so many different recipes that you can get, and when you find the right one for you, it can be SO good!

Bibimbap is such a fun Korean dish!

You get some rice and put a whole bunch of different toppings on it, put a bit of gochujang (a delicious Korean condiment) on top, and you’re all set!

Mandu (Korean Dumplings)

I love mandu! 

It’s such a fun dish to get along side the rest of your order.

They’re tasty dumplings filled with savory juicy meat, but you can also get other flavors and ingredients as well!

Ttekbokki is one of my favorites! They’re short little rice cakes that have a fun satisfying texture and are swimming in a delicious sauce.

I’ve had it with fish cakes and boiled eggs, which also makes the dish so much more fun to eat!

Kimchi Pancakes

Kimchi pancakes are a fun savory tangy fluffy Korean food.

I honestly think it’s a great recipe to pair with some gochujang. I’m not saying that’s a traditional pairing, but it would taste good. 🤷‍♀️

I haven’t had good authentic Korean fried chicken yet, but I know from a friend who lived in Korea, that it’s incredible. 👌
