Hong Kong Food Critic Gets a Taste of Korea

2011/06/21 | 252 views | Permalink | Source

A renowned Hong Kong food critic has offered his take on Korean cuisine.

Seoul's Culture Ministry invited Chua Lam to visit South Korea for five days to sample the local flavor. He stopped at six famed restaurants in downtown Seoul Tuesday and tasted some 20 traditional dishes including seasoned short ribs, the beef stew "seolleongtang" and crab preserved in soy sauce.

He will hold a tasting event at the Korea Tourism Organization on Thursday, and based on his appraisal of items, the organization will develop menus for Chinese tourists.

Chua Lam has worked as a food columnist since the 1980s traveling around the world and tasting foreign foods. He's also written more than 100 books.
