Korean food is having a major moment—you can’t open a menu without spotting something topped with kimchi (aka fermented pickled cabbage) and something else glazed with gochujang (aka the umami-rich condiment of the gods). Bimbimbap and japchae are already regulars in our takeout rotation, but recently, we’ve also been channeling our inner David Chang and experimenting with Korean ingredients in the kitchen. Here are 17 of our favorites.
