      The government is standardizing the names of Korean dishes to help foreign diners know what they are ordering.

      The Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries said Thursday that it has come up with recommended spellings and descriptions for 124 Korean dishes in English, Japanese and Chinese.

      The ministry said the English names were proposed by the Culture Ministry, the Foreign Ministry, the Korea Foundation and the Korea Tourism Organization, and reviewed by linguists and food experts.
