“Food” is one of the good way to experience the real ‘taste’ of one country. Living as a Muslim in Seoul, I’m not facing big problem with food but food still one of the problems. For me I really enjoy Korean street food and I learned about local Korean food through my Korean friends. I keep asking them the ingredient and how they cook the food. I sometimes asks the vendors what the ingredient they use to made the foods. Don’t be surprise that we can eat lot of Korean food for Muslim too the ingredient mostly edible. Such as Tteobokki and Gimbab or even Hotteok, we can eat them all but Please be careful if some of the food might contain ham or beef , usually for Gimbap the vendors put ham and we can request one without ham or we can eat tuna gimbap too.
It will be more better to eat something when you confident about the ingredient. As in Islam also mentioned about if you not confident with the food it’s better not to eat cause it can be ‘haram’. I met many Muslim travelers and they keep complain about food as for them it’s difficult to get halal food. At the same time they also wanted to try street food but not confident with the ingredient. I was thinking to share my knowledge and info about Korean food to Muslim travelers.
