Nowadays when we speak of Korea, the first image in many Thai’s minds is food. Korean food, along with many other aspects of their culture has blended naturally into Thai lifestyles. Whenever Korean series show their food on the screen, bathing them under dim lights makes them even more alluring, and next thing you know, the craving for Korean food has stuck in your head for days.
But your craving has come to an end! Because we Lifesara has vetted through the bunch of Korean eateries in Bangkok and ended up with top 8 restaurants that are not only very delicious but also giving you such an authentic experience that’ll make you feel like you just get off the flight in Korea!!
P.s. Don’t worry about an authentic experience, because every restaurant here have put lots of efforts into creating true Korean atmosphere😁
Let us begin with a Minimal-style restaurant with Italian-Korean fusion cuisine. Their menu may not seem familiar to you but the taste is more than made up for it ✨
And their best set here is Hansang, where you can mix and match the dishes inside to your heart’s content!! Everything! Just for you!! So precious 😭
And while the entire set may seem overwhelming, its price is very friendly. You can bring a few friends over to share this set too! 🤤
✨Our recommended dish here is Fajitas, which is a Mexican-fusion, all-in-one hot pot with the following:
- spicy shrimp in Korean sauce
- stir-fried pork
- stir-fried chicken
- beef steak
💡All of them serving along with tortillas and chili ball dipping sauce. If you still feel like something’s missing, you can add in guacamole, tomato salsa, coleslaw, or if you don’t want beef, you can switch it out with pork shoulder steak as well!
