"Koryo-saram" Cuisine

Ushtobe, Kazakhstan, September 2014

Koryo-saram Korean food differs from traditional Korean food, though many traditional Korean dishes and food preparation techniques persist. This hybrid cuisine includes food used in Russian and Kazakh cuisine, such as potato soup, tomato salad, and bread, as well as a Koryo-saram version of kimchi that includes tomatoes, an ingredient not typically used in Korea.
