Solving KAIST’s International Food Crisis

Author: Mr. Wisal Abdullah

Amongst other cultural disparities that international students get to experience during their stay at KAIST, Korean food is the one that outshines them all. Ranging from the sizzling Samgeopsal, staple appetizer Kimchi , the Soft Tofu Stew, Tteokbokki  to the instant noodles Ramyeon, Korean food, as diverse as it is, is still isn’t much like any food that an average international gets to eat at his/her home. This difference of tastes coupled with religious and culinary beliefs of many internationals (Vegetarians, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists etc) and the amount of food expenses (3500 Won/meal) at Kaimaru in a limited monthly student scholarship makes the issue of provision of nutritious, affordable and belief-appropriate food an immediate concern.
