Cheese Dung-galbi

A popular Korean barbecue dish, these baby back ribs are prepared on the grill at your table, along with chopped peppers, shredded cheese, and corn. Comfort food is usually characterized by a couple things like high calories and carbohydrates, and this dish is no exception.

The vegetables and cheese are incorporated into the fondue sauce. The ribs are grilled and served together as a single dish. It’s a nice contrast between the crisp cheese and the texture of the barbecued ribs.


There’s nothing better than winter comfort food to give you those warm fuzzy feelings than these adorable fish-shaped Korean snack. It is a popular treat for Korean during the winter season!

It’s one of the most common winter street food in Korea. You can find street stalls with freshly cooked Bungeoppang on a waffle iron but with fish-shaped molds.

Sweet red bean paste is used in many different pastries but is also common inside the Bungeoppang. The Korean snacks are not too sweet and crispy on the inside but soft and fluffy on the inside.
