I honestly haven't tasted authentic Korean. The taste is a bit similar with Thai. They also have sweet dishes and of course spicy. One popular delicacy Korean cuisine that is famous is what we call the Kimchi . It is pickled dish made of vegetables with varied seasonings, most commonly referring to the spicy baechu (cabbage) variety-wiki-. I would assume that it is their Atchara version, just like the one we have here in the Philippines.
Another thing that captured my attention, was the table setting. There was a spoon and a set of chopsticks, but not a fork in sight.

Rice was served in a stainless container. I believe that's when the chopsticks will come in handy. Using the sticks, we ate the rice straight from its container. Then we get a piece of meat or vegetable to match it. Again, using the chopsticks.

My son used the spoon, and we had to ask for a fork, so it would be easier for the child to eat.
Sewu Gui---Grilled spicy shrimps
Yache Bokkum---Sauteed assorted vegetables

Here are two more of the dishes we ordered.
Sam Kyup Sal---Grilled fresh pork belly strips
Dweji Kalbi---Grilled spicy pork ribs
Over-all it was okay me. Because I was expecting an exotic taste, that will make it stand-out from the rest. But definitely, you will still love the experience.
