Restaurants - Korean
Korean Restaurants serve Korean cuisine, which is largely based upon the use of rice, vegetables and meats. Traditional Korean meals are noted for the number of side dishes that accompany steam-cooked short-grain rice. Korean restaurants commonly used ingredients include sesame oil, doenjang, soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger pepper flakes and fermented red chili paste.

Korean restaurants table setup is important, from the diner's left should be rice bowl, spoon, then chopsticks. Hot foods are set to the right side of the table, with the cold foods to the left.
