Korean food

Korean food is known for its bold flavors, and it’s one of the most popular cuisines in Asia. Korean barbecue is a great introduction to the cuisine–you’ll get to cook your own food over an open flame at tables with friends or family. Traditionally, this dish involves thinly sliced beef marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil (you can also find chicken), which you then grill over hot coals until it’s cooked through.

Kimchi is also a staple of Korean cuisine: it’s made from fermented cabbage seasoned with garlic, ginger and chile peppers that becomes tangy and spicy after fermenting for several months or years! It pairs well with any type of meat such as bulgogi (marinated beef slices), bibimbap (rice topped with vegetables) or even soju–the national alcoholic beverage made from rice wine fermentation techniques developed by Koreans centuries ago

Indian food

Indian food is one of the most diverse cuisines in the world. It has many different tastes and flavors, from spicy to mild, sweet to savory and everything in between. Indian food also tends to be colorful because of its use of spices like turmeric and saffron which give dishes their vibrant hues. Some common ingredients include tomatoes (which are technically fruits), spinach leaves or mustard greens (also known as sarson ka saag), lentils or beans (dal) and potatoes (aloo).

Explore Asian culture through the taste of food

Food is an integral part of culture. It’s how we share our experiences, traditions and history with each other. So, it only makes sense that if you want to learn about a country’s culture, one of the best ways is through their food!

When traveling abroad or even just in your own city, there are so many places where you can sample different cuisines and get an insight into what makes each culture unique. Here are some ideas on how to explore Asian culture through the taste of food:

  • Travel to different countries where each has its own distinct cuisine; this will allow you not only try new dishes but also experience firsthand what makes each place unique from another region within Asia or outside of it (for example China vs Japan).
  • Sample different cuisines within one country; this gives insight into how cultures mix together over time as well as highlighting regional differences between regions within Asia itself such as China vs Hong Kong vs Singapore etc…


If you’re looking to explore Asian culture through food, this is the perfect place to start. Each section explores a different country’s cuisine and gives you some insight into its history and origin.
