Have you been looking for your favorite African foods in Korea? Come to Pyeongtaek and try a few of the restaurants started by our African community.

The African Community in Pyeongtaek

Our international community in Pyeongtaek has a sizable African population from many different nations including – but not limited to – South Africa, Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Ethiopia. We have African restaurants, mini groceries, churches, clubs, salons, barbers, and shops. Many of the African businesses can be found in Sinjang-dong near Osan Air Force Base but some can also be found near Camp Humphreys.

About African Food

You can try popular African dishes like fufu, jollof rice, fried fish, meat pies, achu, and more. If you are unfamiliar with these African dishes, we highly recommend a deep dive into YouTube to learn more. We love grilled meats, fried fish, meat pies, and jollof rice.

We will not start a debate on how authentic each African restaurant is or which African restaurant is the best since that really is not our place to decide. It does not matter that some of our volunteers have been to Africa so they love eating at these spots. They are not from Africa and they didn’t eat enough African food to be experts on what is the best and most authentic African food around. We will stay in our lane on this one and simply tell you that we enjoy the food and hope you do as well.

We will also not compare the African food in Pyeongtaek to the African food in Seoul, South Korea. South of Seoul does not debate or compare one city’s international food in South Korea with another city’s international food. Why? Because access is more important than finding the perfect food.

It does not matter if Seoul or Busan have African restaurants that do African better or more authentically than Pyeongtaek. What matters is that our community in Pyeongtaek can get fufu and Jollof for dinner when we are too tired to cook. This is real life folks and not a fight for culinary dominance.
