I personally think korean food, more specifically korean bbq, is presently gaining speed in terms of popularity in the US. Korean BBQ’s are popping up everywhere in a more mainstream way rather than restaurants that are gears towards koreans only.

If you think about it, there isn’t much in Korean Cuisine that is of common taste to the American taste palette other than Bulgogi, Kalbi and other meats like that. Japanese cuisine has already taken care of those dishes via teriyaki chicken/beef which has been extremely popular in america for a while.

All the asian foods that have made their way into the american food subculture all have a very generic but great taste that can easily be identified with american’s taste buds.

I fail to see many korean foods that are like that.
