Korea Muslim-Friendly Restaurants Guidebook 2020
Navigating the variety of dietary choices in Korea can be a challenge for any world traveler, even more so for those that have dietary constrictions due to faith. That is why Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) prepared this book, a guide to acceptable food for Muslims. It includes a catalogue of dishes with informational tags to help Muslims make informed food choices. To ensure accuracy, we received valuable input from the Korea Muslim Federation as well as Islamic culture and halal food experts. We have also developed a restaurant rating system that provides accurate and useful information based on four categories: Halal certified, Self-certified, Muslim Friendly & Pork-Free.
As compared to last year Korea’s Muslim-friendly Restaurants Guidebook, this year we have increased the total number of certified Muslim-friendly restaurants from 250 to 315, especially in Gyeonggi, Gangwon, Gyeongsang (Daegu, Ulsan, Busan), Jeolla (Gwangju) and Jeju. We hope this book helps the Muslim community discover the richness and diversity of Korea’s culinary delights.
