Last week we made a post about Korean Food Courts and included a video about them, but we forgot to mention one thing about the food courts; their menus are completely and utterly awesome. Instead of having a laminated paper menu, they have a plastic replica of every single dish they have to offer – kimchi jjigae, sundubu jjigae, tonkatsu, kimbap and ramen, neng myun, etc. By every dish there is a tag indicating the price, the dishâ€™s name, and its order number. This is extremely useful for foreigners here in Bucheon – and Korea altogether – because – if they canâ€™t read or understand Korean – they can at least see what theyâ€™re ordering beforehand, and order by showing the cashier the dish number with their fingers. Itâ€™s really awesome, and should be implemented everywhere around the world.
