Jeonju Hanok Village: Tasty Gluten-Free Foods
Now if you have an allergy to gluten or you have celiac disease. It is best to find out whether any of these foods have traces of gluten in them or have been cross-contaminated. Try to speak with someone at the restaurant about your concerns. If you can’t speak Korean use Papago, it’s a very handy translator.
Bibimbap is a very popular Korean dish that originated in Jeonju. This dish is rice topped with beef, a variety of vegetables, and a spicy sauce. You’ll have no trouble finding somewhere to enjoy a bowl of Bibimbap in Jeonju. The restaurant I visited is called Hanguk Restaurant. So delicious! It is a bit more expensive than the bibimbap I’ve had at other restaurants outside of Jeonju.
Next up is patbingsu. This dessert consists of milk-based shaved ice and sweet toppings. Red beans (or pat) are one of the main toppings on patbingsu. Ok, I know what you’re probably thinking. Red beans on a dessert?? Just trust me on this. It’s so good!
There are many different variations of this dessert. The patbingsu I ate in Jeonju was topped with rice cake and daechu, a sweet fruit. I enjoyed my patbingsu at a nice cafe called 1723.
Ice cream with rice cake
When I visited Jeonju, it was so hot! So ice cream was just the treat I needed to cool down. I ate at a cute little spot called Sobok. I enjoyed matcha ice cream that was topped with fruit, seeds, and rice cake.
Bean Sprout Rice Soup
Another staple Korean dish is Kongnamulguk bap (bean sprout rice soup). This dish consists of rice, broth, bean sprouts, and other vegetables. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant I went to, but you’ll have no problem finding a restaurant if you would like to enjoy a hot bowl of this soup.
I recommend trying this dish because it makes for a great gluten free meal!
I love all things rice cake, so before boarding my train out of Jeonju I made sure to buy a few rice cakes. You can find people selling rice cakes in stores or on the sidewalk.
