This year, Korea Foods hosted a huge Taste of Korea section at the Taste of London. Some of the biggest Korean brands including Nongshim, Chung Jung One and Lotte were there showcasing their food offerings and there was a Korean bar + pop up restaurant hosted by Gizzi.
As part of this, all the Korean traders were asked to come and give away samples of their food so that visitors could have a taste on our modern take on Korean food.
For Busan BBQ, we gave away mini sliders of our new Busan Burger. The burger is made from 28-day aged rare breed British beef (supplied from our friends at Quality Chop) and it is lightly seasoned and then coated in a sticky Bulgogi sauce and served with lettuce, topped with mustard pickled onions. The idea is that you get a little taste of traditional Korean BBQ – the beef, the marinade, the onions, the lettuce – all of these form an essential part of “Ssam.”
It was a really great opportunity to meet lots of new people and talk about Korean food. Thank you to everyone that popped by, we hope you enjoyed your burger!
