The Correct Etiquette For Eating Ssam At Korean Barbecue Restaurants
Ssam, meaning "wrapped" in Korean, is a Korean barbecue dish that involves wrapping meat in leafy herbs or vegetables, creating a delicious blend of textures and tastes.
The art of eating ssam involves selecting a crisp lettuce leaf, placing juicy barbecued meat dipped in sauce on top, then adding kimchi or another banchan (side dish).
Each ssam roll is meant to be eaten in one big bite, so to do it traditionally and properly, don't stuff your ssam wrapping with more filling than you can eat in one go.
Ideally, you should pair ssam with Korean alcoholic beverages like soju or makgeolli, as they help cleanse the palate and enhance the flavors of all the ingredients.
