You Heard It Here First

The Prick, 25 September:

It should also be noted that the Koreans have an awesome cuisine which has been ignored for far too long by the fooderati: it’s bold, spicy stuff that grabs you and doesn’t let go. Nor is it just bibimbap, as great as that may be. This may be an early call, but I’m tipping Korean food as one of the big food trends of 2013., today:

First it was Gangnam Style, now Korean food is tipped to be the next big thing:

Food trend forecasters and supermarkets are predicting dishes such as kimchi, bulgogi and bibimbap will be up there with favourites like pad thai and laksa as Australia’s exploration of the Asian food map continues.

“People’s interest in Korean food is riding high,” said food personality and host of SBS’s Food Safari Maeve O’Meara.

“It’s delicious and really good for you. The Koreans eat for both taste and health.”

    I am not at all surprised by this. I have always said korean food was underrated. There is/was a great value korean place in the top end of Poland Street in Soho London which I used to go to all the time when I was living there.

    I suspect it’s fringe mainstream already – my wife came to me excited about something she had tried called bibimbap a couple of years ago, I sought it out from curiosity and liked it a lot. Point being, we pride ourselves on enjoying good food and being open but are very far from the front of the curve, so there must be a bit around.
