How To Say It’s Delicious in Korean

맛있어요

[masi-sseoyo]
It’s good (for food / beverage)

 

The basic form of 맛있어요 is 맛있다. 맛 means ‘taste’ and 있다 means ‘have’ or ‘there is’ so It literally means ‘it has taste’. It has taste… lol I know it doesn’t make sense much in English but that’s how Korean sense works for this phrase.

 

Korean language doesn’t use ‘it’s good’ for food. Also, Korean doesn’t have any other expression for it’s delicious except some slangs.

 

맛있어요 is most natural when someone asks you if the food is good. It’s a little bit odd to use alone when you start a conversation.

 

이 과자 진짜 맛있어요
This snack is really good

맛있다 Meaning

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard 맛있다 sometimes when you watch K-drama. Native Koreans say 맛있다 as an exclamation for 맛있어요.  It’s a bit informal but it’s really natural when you say it like talking to yourself.

 

와 이거 진짜 맛있다
Wow this is really good

Do You Like It? I Love It!

When you ask if others like the food or snack or beverage, you must ask ‘맛있어요?’ instead of ‘is it good?’ because that’s how native Koreans ask.

 

Natural answers are ‘맛있어요(It’s delicious)’ or ‘진짜 맛있어요(It’s really delicious). Since Korean language doesn’t have a natural expression for ‘I love it’, You can consider 진짜 맛있어요 as ‘I love it’.
