Until just recently, family restaurants serving Western-style foods or seafood dishes enjoyed tremendous popularity in Korea. However, classy salad bar style Korean food restaurants are now booming, tempting Korea’s leading food companies to rush to open their own franchises.

Food industry insiders say that several factors in such a recent rapid growth of hansik restaurants are at work, including the declining popularity of franchises family restaurants. Experts point out that now the hansik restaurants are replacing them. Consumers are enthusiastic about the high quality and a wide selection of dishes — marinated grilled pork, ssambap (rice with leaf wraps), Korean soup, a variety of Korean vegetable side dishes, Korean pancakes, and pickled vegetables — and relatively reasonable charges of between about 15,000 (about US$15) and 25,000 (S$25) won in these hansik restaurants.
