It is very Tasty and Sinful! Since the US Beef Ban in 2003, koreans have rediscoved the cheap alternative to expensive local beef by buying thin slices of pork belly called samgyeopsal. fatty slices of pork belly meat are served in the same fashion as galbi, with the meat flavored with garlic, salt and sesame oil and cooked on a grill at the diners' table. Prior to consumption, the large slices of meat are cut into smaller pieces with scissors. A common way to consume the meat is to place a slice inside a lettuce or other green leaf with some cooked rice and ssamjang, a paste made out of chili paste (gochujang) and soybean paste (doenjang).
It is very popular around korea since it costs only 12,000 won an order!
