Ssambap – 37 items if you count the scissors
Ssambap is typically served in the south of South Korea. Gyeongjou, a historic town, is known for its ssambap. My friend and I enjoyed a fun meal at Guro Ssambap, located within walking distance of several of Gyeongjou’s World Heritage Sites. It was very easy to navigate the menu because there isn't any. We must have looked puzzled because a busy waitress passing by said "Ssambap! Ssambap!", which we figured meant something like: "Be patient. Everything will be brought to you". It was. The servers crowded our table with little plates, known as banchan, or side dishes. There was also a platter of various types of leaves...lettuce, cabbage, and other greens. You drop a dab of the contents of any one or combo of the little dishes onto a clump of rice and roll it all up in a green leaf. Repeat and repeat. A lot. Until you are full. Guro Ssambap is one of a couple of eateries clustered together just across the street from the entrance to the royal burial mounds in Tumuli Park . The whole meal for two cost the equivalent of less than $10 US per person. P.S. The scissors are for radish-cutting.
