Korea’s Delivery Practices

Our Seattle Korean restaurant can bring you very close to an authentic Korean dining experience, but there are some things that you just don’t get out of the country. Consider, for example, the experience of ordering delivery in Korea. Though mundane, this task is a source of much confusion to first-time visitors on the peninsula due to the unusual practice that often goes behind it.

When you order food from many restaurants in Korea, you may find that it comes to your door in higher-quality dishes than you may expect. Maybe you’ll get bulgogi in a fine, lacquered box, or you’ll get jjigae in a metal bowl with matching spoons and rice dishes. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t throw these dishes away! The person who delivered your food is going to come back later to retrieve these dishes. It’s just another part of Korea’s exceptional efforts to reduce waste and lead a greener, cleaner future!
