with friends is a Japanese-style dining experience worth trying.
Japanese food is very popular in Korea, but, as with Korean Chinese, Koreans have done some culinary picking and choosing over the years, regarding which Japanese food they fancy and absorb into their own cuisine. The most obvious one that is in every nook, cranny, and mom-and-pop store in this country is the famous staple, Ramen. Sushi is here, but is often found in localized forms called Chobap and Sashimi. Another food of Japanese origin that has been deeply integrated into Korean cuisine is donkkas, which is essentially a fried pork cutlet. Korean street carts always have Koreans huddled around, eating Japanese snack food like Odeng and Udong, as well. Another famous food that traces back to Japan (actually, the origin goes back to Mongolia, but Japan cuisine embraced and popularized) is Shabu Shabu, which involves diners participating in a fondue-esque boiling of beef and vegetables.
