Indian Foods Spices up Korea

Jeju, South Korea is becoming the place for Indian curry.

Curry Wala is now opened at Gwakji internationalising the food culture. Curry Wala adds to fish and chips at Taehee Cafe and French food will be on offer at soon-to-open Le pirate.

Curry Wala received favorable reviews from the local community. Sachin Mahajan, a visitor at the restaurant said, “It provides the closest I've had to mom's cooking since I came to Korea.”

“I wanted to provide real Indian home cooking. I will provide more food in the future and eventually I want to serve Tibetan food, but the ingredients are very hard to find”, said, Dawa, Owner of the restaurant.

Curry Wala is situated in Gwakji, Aewol-eup, just a hundred meters from the beach. The restaurant currently offers a simple set meal of chicken curry, chai tea and chapati for 10,000 won. Makgeolli shakes and lassi are also available for 5,000 won each.

Dawa, a Tibetan, lived for six years in India, says he is one of just six Tibetans in Korea - “I have met them all” - and the only in Jeju. He has clearly settled in well to local life - he has taken Korean citizenship and part from his restaurant he works as a carpenter and fishes in the local seas.

Curry Wala also doubles as an Indian cultural outlet - “We loved India so much we wanted to introduce the culture to people here,” said Ms. Kim Mina, Dawa’s wife.
