March 3rd

Posted in Diary notes, Quintesentially Korean by 노강호 on March 3, 2010

March 3rd, (삼-삼) is the day to eat sam-kyeop-sal (삼겹살).  ‘Three’, in Sino-Korean, is ‘sam’ and hence today, March 3rd, is ‘sam-sam.’ Sam-kyeop-sal is barbecued pork, resembling unsmoked and uncured bacon which is eaten wrapped in various types of leaf garnished with an array of side dishes which differ from one establishment to another. Kimchi and raw garlic however, are usually always present. Sam-kyeop -sal is usually accompanied with soju.
