While in Pohang, we decided to order in some bossam. Bossam, is steamed pork wrapped in leaves and other ingredients. Imagine it like the Korean version of peking duck.
We found Flower Pig in a directory and decided to try it out. They only use local Korean pigs and the restaurant is open till 1am. We ordered around 6pm and took about an hour for them to prepare and deliver the meal.
We ordered a large order of bossam and it was definitely enough for 5 people. All the component was there to begin wrapping those slices of steamed pork.
It also came with free cold noodles. It was quite large but it wasn’t very good. The noodles were damp and seemed like very random ingredients were thrown in.
The steamed pork had a lot of slices.
We had some carrots, lettuce, sesame leaves, peppers and sliced garlic.
These were salted shrimp, marinated onions, red sauce and some kinda of unidentified liquid.
We also had a large box of kimchi. There was so much that we didn’t make a large dent into it.
With the ingredients, you kinda just throw it together to suit your tastebuds.
The restaurant that we ordered from wasn’t very good. The bossam would have been much better if we had it grilled to have a little bit more of a crunch. Next time, I’d probably just have it at a restaurant or make it at home. Delivery is never the same unless you know a good place.
