Korean Food in Spain (Restaurantes Coreanos en España)
Naomi Imatome

Although there are less than 1,000 Korean expats living in the Barcelona area, I was surprised to find some good Korean restaurants in the city on my last extended stay there. Since Korea is a peninsula and the cuisine is full of fish and all types of sea creatures, Korean restaurants in Barcelona benefit from the abundance of fresh local seafood.

You may not receive as many free side dishes as you do at Korean restaurants in America, but you can experience some tapas-style Korean food and enjoy the amazing deal of the “menu del dia”. This midday meal at Spanish eateries includes an appetizer, main course and dessert (and sometimes a drink) for one price. It's the most economical way to eat in Spain.

Although these restaurants were open at the time of publication, always check the times and current locations by calling or visiting restaurant websites.
