There are a number of beverages that can only be found in Korea. And even the drinks that can be found in other places are a little bit different in Korea. Quench your thirst with these very Korean drinks!
Traditional Korean drinks:
– Shikhae: A traditional Korean dessert drink. Shikhae is a sweet rice beverage which has bits of rice in the drink, and it is usually served at the end of meals.
– Sujeonggwa: Another traditional Korean dessert drink that is made from ginger, cinnamon among other ingredients.
Bae: Asian (Korean) Pears. This is a drink made from Korean pears. It typically has a lot of pulp, so you should shake it before drinking 😉
Vita500: This is a “vitamin drink.” They can be bought by the box, so Vita500 is a popular drink to give as a gift to your sickly, or maybe just thirsty, friend.
Coca-cola: In Korea, Coca-cola is called “Cola” not “Coke.” So when asking for this at a restaurant, say “cola juseyo” (콜라 주세요).
Banana Milk: Banana-flavored milk is a popular drink among Koreans, both children and adults a like. Another popular milk drink is strawberry milk.
Coffee Milk: This drink is cheaper than other coffee drinks because it comes in a plastic pouch. You’ll need a scissor to get to the goods!
I hv seen Banana Milk, Pear drink & the Vita500 in my country but the other drink? Hmm, must keep a lookou when I go shopping in a korean shop, thank you
Banana Uyu juseyo ^^
Your comment…I wish I could find the last one at some korean shop here in Brazil. But I can only find alcohol ones like soju xD
Nice informative, keep it up. By the way Songa Min looks cute.
I didn’t drink enough of it when I was in Korea…I’d like to find it in Europe (I didn’t find it until now T_T)
But I love Shikae too…어떻게~~
Thanks for the appetizing post!^o^
In the Philippines we sometimes drink juice out of a plastic bag like the Coffee Milk ^^
I want to try all, except coffee milk, I dont like coffee ^^
I wish there was a supermarket with korean cheap drinks hehe
Thanks for this kind of post, this is great to know more about korean culture 🙂
When I was in Korea I tried Banana uiu, it was delicious! Aslo I tried sikke in chimjilban! And it was awesome, you try those drinks!!!
Hi, anyone know the beverage for good sleeping with a sheep label name One Hundred Dreams in Korean? I bought it at 7-11,Korea, it really effective but i can’t get it at Malaysia or any online shop.
My Korean teacher gave me and the rest of the class shikhae as a treat one time and I thought it was super gross! The taste wasn’t good and the rice floating around was pretty unpleasant. I’d like to try Sujeonggwa though!
