This is the greatest Korean restaurant visit I’ve ever had in Abu Dhabi (Taon Korean Restaurant). At Abu Dhabi Korean Restaurant, it was Relay Wonder full time. They specialize in authentic Korean cuisine. This hotel provided me with the opportunity to dine at a Korean BBQ restaurant. Their cuisine and service were both amazing. Abu Dhabi Korean Restaurant’s Culinary Team is led by a talented chef. The restaurant is located in the SOFITEL ABU DHABI CORNICHE and serves Korean cuisine.

Asian Cuisine’s Most Popular Dishes

Stew with Kimchi

One of the most popular stews in Korean cuisine is kimchi stew. It’s a meaty, spicy, salty, and tasty dish that almost everyone enjoys. I’ve never encountered a person who didn’t like kimchi-jjigae as long as they can handle hot cuisine.
Kimchi existed as a non-spicy pickled vegetable meal even before the Joseon dynasty; however, it was not until the mid-era introduction of chili peppers to the Korean peninsula that the type of kimchi that has become the de facto norm of today was born. Kimchi jjigae is thought to have originated around the same time.


  • Chamchi kimchi jjigae (참치 김치찌개) is made with tuna.
  • Ggongchi kimchi jjigae (꽁치 김치찌개) is made with Pacific saury.
  • Budae jjigae (부대찌개) is made by stewing kimchi.

Bulgogi with Beef

Bulgogi literally translates to “fire meat.” It’s frequently cooked with tender beef, hog, or chicken portions. However, unless otherwise stated, bulgogi is always cooked using beef.
It is without a doubt one of the most well-known Korean traditional meals, having existed for thousands of years. Naturally, bulgogi cooking methods have changed over time and vary by region.
To focus our attention, we’ll discuss the most prevalent method of preparing beef bulgogi in modern times.
Bulgogi is offered in Korean barbecue restaurants, and bulgogi-flavored fast-food hamburgers are available at numerous South Korean fast-food joints. The bulgogi-marinated hamburger patty is served with lettuce, tomato, onion, and occasionally cheese.
  • Kongnamul-bulgogi
  • Osam-bulgogi


Bibimbap, also known as beebimbap and pronounced bee-bim-BOP, is a popular Korean rice dish topped with fresh and cooked veggies with gochujang, a spicy red chile paste. A fried egg is frequently put on top, along with seasoned raw or grilled beef.
The way the dish is presented varies, but the different veggies and meat are usually put on top of the rice and then mixed together before eating. While Korean BBQ is now popular in the United States, bibimbap is set to become one of Korea’s most popular foods.
The word bap (bahp, bob, bab) in Korean refers to cooked grains, especially rice, and the word bibimbap means “mixed rice” but can also be translated as “mixed meal” because “bap” is also used to signify meal in a general sense.
  • Bibimbap in Jeonju
  • Bibimbap in a hot stone pot
  • Yakcho-bibimbap
  • Hoedeopbap

Hot Pot

Hot pot is more of an experience than a dish, embodying the communal dining attitude that many Western restaurants have only recently adopted. Consider it a modern take on the stone soup fairy tale: you and a group of friends cook an assortment of ingredients in a single pot of simmering, seasoned broth heated on an induction burner or electric range, including thinly sliced meats, mushrooms, head-on shrimp, Chinese lettuces, fresh noodles, and more. When it’s done to your liking, you dip it in your favorite sauce and devour it. Rinse and repeat until the bowl is completely full.
Hot pot comes in as many varieties as there are Chinese households, although there are different regional styles. The original, introduced to East Asia by the Mongolian Empire thousands of years ago, was a basic broth containing horse meat and mutton. (An apocryphal anecdote describes it as a dish eaten on the run in Mongolian warriors’ helmets.) The hot pot evolved as their cultural influence extended, taking on a variety of forms in Northern China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam.


Ramen is a type of Japanese noodle soup. It comprises of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat or (sometimes) fish-based broth with toppings such as sliced pig , nori (dried seaweed), menma, and scallions, and is often seasoned with soy sauce or miso. The tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen of Kyushu and the miso ramen of Hokkaido are two examples of ramen from different parts of Japan. Mazemen is a type of ramen that is served with a sauce rather than a soup (such as tare).
  • Ramen in the style of Tokyo
  • Ramen Kitakata
  • Tonkotsu ramen from Hakata.
  • Ramen from Wakayama
  • Tsukemen ramen is a type of dipping ramen.
  • Aburasoba is a type of aburasoba that is (“oiled noodles”)
  • Ramen from Takayama
  • Ramen hiyashi (chilled)
  • Hokkaido’s specialty is butter corn ramen.
  • Sapporo-style ramen
  • Curry ramen from Muroran

Altogether, we had a great night at dinner, and I enjoy Korean cuisine. Both the food and the service were superb.
