Chinese-language version of Korean food app launched

A government-affiliated foundation said Monday the Chinese-language version of a free mobile application introducing Korean cuisine is now available.

The Korean Food Guide 800, which is already in service in English and Spanish, includes information on rice, side dishes and soups that South Koreans enjoy daily, as well as the country's specialty dishes, the Korea Foundation said (FK).

The app, which provides information on more than 800 dishes, can be used by Chinese speakers who are traveling to South Korea or those who want to know more about the Korean dish they're trying in their home country, according to the foundation.

The content can be searched based on ingredients or recipes and the app also introduces historical and cultural background related to the dish, the Seoul-based foundation said.

The application is available via Google Play, iPhone App Store and Chinese search engine Baidu. (Yonhap)
