Best Korean restaurants in Prague

Where to go in Prague for traditional bibimbap, Korean BBQ and other specialties

When you say "Korean cuisine", most of us probably think of kimchi at first. True, this vitamin-packed fermented cabbage, which is even the national dish in Korea, is very popular in our country for its beneficial effects. But Korea has given us much more in terms of taste treasures. Whichever of the Korean restaurants in Prague you visit, you will find a wide variety of interesting dishes that are definitely worth trying! Especially if you like the distinctive flavours of garlic, soy sauce, sesame or chilli, ingredients typical of Korean food. 

And so that you don't get burned by the choice of where to eat Korean food in Prague, if only by the larger amount of chilli, not by the choice of the place itself, we have written down some tips for the best Korean restaurants in Prague that we have had good experience with.

The best of Korean cuisine

Which traditional Korean food can you find on the menu of most Korean restaurants in Prague?

If you are one of those people who could eat rice every day, you will love bibimbap, literally translated as "mixed rice". The base is the cooked rice, to which vegetables, meat, eggs (both raw and cooked or otherwise prepared) are added. The dish is so variable that everyone will find their own (except those who don't like rice, of course :) ). Everything is then seasoned with a mixture based on soy sauce, Korean gochujang chilli paste and sesame oil. The dish is usually a feast for the eyes, the various ingredients carefully piled on top of the rice create a beautiful palette of colours and flavours. But be sure to mix the whole composition thoroughly before you dig into the bibimbap! 

A traditional Korean dish made from thinly sliced beef cooked on a grill or pan. Its specific taste is given by a special marinade, to which, in addition to soy sauce, fruit puree (traditionally from Korean pear, but sometimes also from pineapple or kiwi) is added. It is most often served with rice or wrapped in lettuce leaves, but its popularity means that it can also be served in alternative forms such as burgers.

Topokki rice cakes
A popular street food in Korea. These are hearty rice cakes, similar to gnocchi, which are steamed and then mixed with hot sauce to give them their typical red colour. Koreans love this dish especially in winter, when it gives them the energy they need and warms up the whole body. However, if you are not a fan of spicy food, you may find tasting it a rather unpleasant experience.

Korean BBQ
If Korean cuisine appeals to you so much that you would like to taste everything, head to some restaurants in Prague offering real Korean barbeque! It features meat grilled right on the tables in front of the guests (or grilled by the guests themselves), all complemented by "banchan", smaller bowls of various side dishes placed in the middle of the table for sharing. In addition to a gastronomic experience, Korean BBQ is thus considered a social event.

Each of the restaurants offers a completely different experience. Numaru is designed as a fusion restaurant. In Pocha, you can try Korean street food-inspired dishes, and Ggogi specialises in traditional Korean BBQ. What all the establishments have in common is a welcoming atmosphere and friendly service.
