ABSTRACT

At the end of the 19th century, at a time when the international situation was rapidly changing, Chinese cuisine entered Korea along with Overseas Chinese. For over 100 years, some Chinese dishes have been modified to suit the tastes of Koreans and have become 'Korean-style Chinese Cuisine'. These foods contain the shared memories of Chinese and Koreans, and can be said to be an important achievement of cultural exchange between Korea and China. Korean-style Chinese cuisine has developed its own symbolic meaning by changing the cooking method, ingredients, eating method, and appearance of a Chinese restaurant in the process of Koreanization. It developed into a food with symbolic meaning of 'popular food' in Koreans' lives, with meanings such as 'food eaten on special days', 'comfort food', 'good food for eating alone', and 'representative delivery food'.
