[buzz KOREA Tour: Sancheong-Busan] Heuk Dwaeji (Black Pork) Samgyeopsal Lunch in Sancheong

Finally after the four-hour drive, we arrived in Sancheong. We stopped by a Korean restaurant near Donguibogam Village. Stomach rumbling and it was time to eat. 🙂

We ate Heuk Dwaeji (black pig/pork) samgyeopsal for lunch, plus the delicious Banchan (side dishes) you see in Korean meals.

Samgyeopsal is the most popular pork dish among Koreans. Samgyeopsal is cooked on the grill with Kimchi, mushrooms, garlic, and onion. Koreans often enjoy the Samgyeopsal with Ssam. Ssam comes from the historic Korean food culture to wrap a variety of foods at once with a vegetable which has a wide leaf. The most common are the lettuce and perilla leaf.

Since Jessica and Shaima (from Indonesia and UAE in my team) cannot eat pork, they had Bibimbap. It literally means “mixed rice”. It is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. They are mixed together thoroughly just before eating.

That was the best Samgyeopsal I have tasted and we were full. 🙂

After we ate, it was time to visit the 2013 World Traditional Medicine Fair & Festival. See my next post.
