Koreans are often called the Irish of Asia, and their cooking has been referred to as "Japanese food with guts." Dishes are hearty and bracing. Garlic, scallions, chilies, soy sauce and sesame are essential flavorings for many dishes. Rice is the main staple, although noodles are popular too. The pickled cabbage called kimchi is a national treasure.
