New Yorkers’ favorite Korean dishes are bulgogi and galbi, according to a survey carried out by the Korean Food Foundation and South Korea’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.

The survey was released Tuesday and taken through six months beginning in 2014 to measure the spread of Korean food to overseas countries.

It surveyed 1,512 Korean restaurant owners in the U.S. and 6,500 consumers in 13 cities, including New York, Tokyo, Beijing and London.

Consumers chose kimchi as Korea’s most famous food. In New York, 67 percent of those surveyed said they knew of Korean foods.

The city also scored highest among 13 cities in scoring an average of 4.2 out of 5 points when it came to customers’ intent to return to Korean restaurants.
