Hi and welcome to ”’Sesame Sprinkles”’! 🤗

Let me introduce you to the world of Korean food culture (K-food) – from the perspective of a vegetarian! Knowing how challenging it is to find food in Korea if you have dietary restrictions, I decided to create this homepage as a food guide, which

  • provides background information on traditional and contemporary Korean food items (e.g. fresh produce, grains, sauces) and introduces authentic dishes that are veggie-friendly
    #eatlikealocal #foodtour #traveladvice #foodexplained
  • offers ideas on how to eat well, balanced and in accordance with personal preferences
    #survivaltips #healthyeating #foodintolerance
  • reviews selected locations for eating out, such as cafes and restaurants
    #travelforfood #restaurantreviews #맛집추천 #맛집투어 #맛집탐방
  • helps you communicate and understand Korean language with regards to food 
    #basicKorean #learnKorean

Accordingly, you will find above elements as the main categories which comprise the structure of this blog: 1.) Food Basics 2.) Korean Dishes 3.) Eating Out 4.) Food and Korean

Besides, this homepage is designed in particular with respect to people who follow a lifestyle with dietary characteristics, such as 🥕🥦 vegan, 🥚🥛 vegetarian, 🐟🦐 pescetarian, 🚫🐖 halal, 🚫🐖 kosher, 🚫🐄 hindu, 🚫🥛 dairy free, 🚫🌾 gluten free etc. But it also welcomes anyone who is interested in #koreanfood, enjoys #foodporn or looks for occasional alternatives for #healthyeating.

Overall, I’m hoping that it can give you some orientation in Korea, where food is an important aspect of the culture. 🇰🇷❤️🍽 I’d like for you to have a good experience in Korea. 😊❤️

🌱About the Name of the Homepage
I called this website ”’Sesame Sprinkles”’ with reference to an essence of Korean food: Sesame.

Not only are sesame seeds or their nutritious oil among the key ingredients of traditional and contemporary Korean cooking. Additionally, sesame seeds are frequently sprinkled on all types of foods, regardless whether main dish, snack or dessert. Sesame provides flavor and nourishment; with regards to its traditional value it symbolizes affluence, and lastly, enhances the food’s aesthetic quality when used as a garnish. Thus, these tiny seeds play a rather great role in Korean culinary culture. In other words, sesame seeds are like the cherry on top of Korean food.
