KOREAN OUTSIDE KOREA

PLACES to EAT

KOREAN OUTSIDE KOREA

This is an on-going list of experiences eating Korean food outside of Korea.  Currently 37 cities in 17 countries.  While the list covers a lifetime (as best as I can recall), the first 16 cities were pre-GMTD and thus mostly undocumented (except Beijing); for some of those cities (e.g., Los Angeles), later posts have been added; proper documentation begins with the 17th city (Phnom Penh).  In some cases, the Korean food was not the featured meal of the post.
