Bossam (보쌈) is a Korean dish, which is usually serve with alcoholic beverages. These variety of dishes which taste best with alcohol is known as Anju(안주) in Korean.
I love to eat Bossam with perilla (kkaenip in Korean). You can also have your Bossam with lettuce and it taste equally good. Those who want to have a little more spice in their bossam, you can also add raw garlic, pepper, saeujeot 새우젓 (shirmp paste), sweet kimchi and/or ssamjang 쌈장 (a kind of spicy paste)! Bossam is a very affordable dish in Korea which can be easily found in small restaurants.
Bossam can also be found in many Korean restaurant overseas. The above picture is a bossam-inspired Korean dish in a high-end restaurant located in Singapore. It cost about 5 times more than the ones you can find in Korea.
