The South Korean food scene is slowly but surely being picked up by Americans.
In South Korea, the country’s top 10 most popular foods are: Kyeokjeong-gyeon-do, the best-selling Korean fried chicken in the country.
There’s a Korean BBQ, a fried pork, a kimchi, a curry-style rice pudding and an egg dish.
The best-sellers are: Chicken wings, fish tacos, and Korean-style soup.
For dessert, the top dessert in South Korea is Korean cake, which can be topped with chocolate and whipped cream.
Desserts in the U.S. have been a staple for years in the nation’s southern region, where the majority of the population is Korean.
But the U-shaped cake, with its flat, round, and chocolate-covered tops, has exploded in popularity in the last decade.
Last year, a study by the Korea Tourism Organization found that the top five dessert places in the United States are: Korean-styled cake at a Korean restaurant at the Korean Market in Chicago; Korean cake at an ice cream parlor in Seattle; Korean dessert at an Asian supermarket in San Francisco; Korean desserts at a South Korean-themed restaurant in New York City; and Korean dessert in a Korean dessert shop in Los Angeles.

While the popularity of Korean desserts has exploded, they are still a niche dessert, and there are few options in the market.
Some restaurants and shops specialize in Korean desserts.
It’s difficult to find a Korean cake in the grocery store, but the Korean-dessert shop in the upscale shopping district of Koreatown is the most well-known Korean dessert spot in the world.
“We have Korean desserts, we even have Korean ice cream,” said the owner of the Korean dessert store.
“I’ve tried Korean desserts in other countries but I never experienced this level of popularity,” said a customer, who did not want to give his name. “
And they are just delicious.”
