I’m going to use this post as a bookmark for mentions of Korean food in people’s trend lists for 2009 or in their lists for 2008 best dishes.
I’m working on an article for SEOUL Magazine right now detailing two trends in Korean food itself that I think are growing: lamb in Korean restaurants and kebab stands.
Best of 2008

NOTE: Baum & Whiteman are the big guys in the food prediction category. They predicted Korean food becoming a trend last year, too.
