How many of us are aware of Korean food availability in Kolkata? Very few for sure, which includes foreigners, foodies, and some of the food bloggers. But flowing with the rise in popularity of Korean drama and music among the teens, people are getting in touch with Korean culture, fashion and increasing the high demand for Korean food day by day.

Let’s get to the flashback, It was Kimchi (the preserved cabbage) the foundation of Korean cooking. The Koreans were a small community in the mid-’90s in Chennai, mostly traders operating between Korea and India, but their number blew up when Hyundai selected Chennai for its first power plant. Sunny Jun, a humble person who came to India to manufacture soft toys, set up “Korea House” the first Korean restaurant in India.

Let the Korean food restaurants in Kolkata be your perfect spot, to treat you to some delightful Korean delicacies.
