    “Delicious Seoul” was the second installment of Seoul’s Korean food pop-up event, participating in Belgium’s representative food festival “Eat!

Every year, some 100,000 people come to the festival and enjoy cuisine of local fine dining restaurants in Brussels, as well as exotic cooking worldwide. In 2019, some 14 cities participated in the festival.

For this event, Chef Cho Hee-sook of Hansikgonggan, an expert in Korean food and popularly praised as “Chefs’ Mentor,” participated as a cooking consultant and took in charge of supervising menus. A team of young cooks who specialize in Western and Korean cuisines presented 8 kinds of menus emphasizing Korean food elements, such as dried vegetable bibimbap, shrimp pancakes, chungmu gimbap, spicy bulgogi, braised pollack noodles, and fried tofu. They were showered with praises and questions like “Where can I have this kind of food?” Soybean paste sauce and relatively spicy chili sauce were very popular among local visitors. In particular, shrimp pancakes were a big hit and saw the possibility of globalization of traditional Korean pancakes.
