Sometimes when it’s really cold or hot, rainy or snowy outside or just when you’re being lazy having delivery food (takeout) is a nice treat. In South Korea having food delivered is a common event and you see the delivery scooters zipping around basically 24/7.
For our Lazy Lunch we called a local restaurant placed our order: One Soft Tofu Stew (순두부찌개), One Tuna Kimbap (참치 김밥) and One Meat Mandu (고기만두) gave our info and waiting maybe 20mins for it to arrive. The great total was just ₩11,000 ($11) payable by either by cash or card. There is no charge for delivery and they even come back later to collect the dirty dishes (and spoon).

Firstly here is an example Korean Food Delivery Menu, as you can see it is completely in Korean and as you might guess you need to be able to read and speak pretty good Korean in order to order delivery food in South Korea. Plus you will need to know your address.
Also here is an old video (5 years ago) made by the guys at Eat Your Kimchi explaining the steps, it should help you out a little.
And once again (and more recently in 2012) the Eat Your Kimchi crew made this video:

Reblogged this on Seoul for my soul and commented:
Love this. Great video.
Can you order even if you stay anywhere in seoul ? Or its limited to certain areas ?
Basically every area has at less one (normally more) Korean Restaurants that offer delivery. It’s not just limited to Seoul it’s possible all over Korean.
However the difficulty can be finding out where and ordering if you don’t speak Korean.
