Notes

A common Korean meal during the hotter months is something called 'ssam' - grilled slices of pork belly (either plain or with a chilli marinade) placed in a lettuce leaf with a little rice, a dab of Korean chilli paste and a few 'banchan'. Very refreshing and is often enjoyed as a communal meal!
