Traditional side dishes or banchan accompany every meal.

Food is a defining element of Korean culture. Korean cuisine is largely based upon rice, vegetables, and meats. Traditional Korean meals include a number of side dishes (banchan) that accompany steam-cooked short-grain rice.  Kimchi, a traditional side dish made of various fermented seasoned vegetables, most commonly nappa cabbage, is the perfect accompaniment to any meal.  A meal without kimchi is unthinkable for most Koreans.  Common ingredients in traditional Korean cuisine include gochujang (fermented red pepper paste), doenjang (fermented soy bean paste), soy sauce, garlic, ginger, red pepper powder, crushed sesame seed, sesame oil, salt, and green onion.

We invite you to experience the unique and delicious flavors of Korean cuisine at Gangnam Korean Restaurant, where we use only the freshest ingredients for our traditional family recipes and prepare each dish to order.

The taste of love


The taste of love


"Koreans traditionally make a distinction between the “tongue taste” and the “hand taste” of a food. (…)
Tongue taste is the kind of easy, accessible flavor that any food scientist or manufacturer can reliably produce in order to make food appealing. 
Hand taste, however, involves something greater than mere flavor. It is the infinitely more complex experience of a food that bears the  unmistakable signature of the individual who made it — the care and the thought and idiosyncrasy that that person has put into the work of preparing it. Hand taste cannot be faked, (…) and hand taste is the reason we go to all this trouble, massaging the individual leaves of each cabbage and then folding them and packing them in the urn just so. What hand taste is, I understood all at once, is the taste of love."

--Michael Pollan, Cooked (Penguin Press, 2013)
