VIDEO| Speakin’ Korean lesson: Is this spicy?

If you're at a Korean restaurant and see something that looks irresistibly tasty but spicy, you may hesitate to try the food. It’s a good way to ask a server how spicy the food is before ordering your meal if you have a low tolerance for spicy food. If you want to ask a server how spicy the food on the menu, you can use this phrase. “Igeo Maewoyo?” which means “Is this spicy?”

“Is this spicy?”
= 이거 매워요? (Igeo Maewoyo?)
 (igeo = this, maewoyo = spicy)

Stay safe and keep an eye out for the next Speakin’ Korean lesson.
