Chicago got a taste of Korea Thursday with Wheeling’s “Taste of the Town” celebration.

Held at Westin Chicago North Shore, the event benefited three charities, among them the Korean Cultural Center of Chicago. It invited about 30 eateries — including those who brought Korean-style whole chicken, galbi, seaweed and meatballs — to come out and offer wine, craft beer and food tastings to attendees.

A taekwondo demonstration, as well as traditional Korean poongmul band SoriBeat, put on live performances.

“This is our second time participating in Taste of the Town, and I’m so glad that galbi is seeing such a good reaction,” said Kim Seung-ja, president of the cultural center, referring to Korean-style marinated beef short ribs. ”I think this event is meaningful because we can share Korean food and culture through it.”

Kim said last year’s event raised $2,400, which the center used toward scholarships.
