Monday Market Ban Ch'an (반찬)

Posted in Quintesentially Korean, Uncategorized by 노강호 on June 1, 2010

Basically, ban ch’an (반찬) is the collective term for the extensive number of side dishes which can accompany a Korean meal. This most noted of these being kimchi (김치)  but of course, there are many different types of kimchi. I used to buy my ban ch’an in E-Marte but have discovered it is much cheaper to buy in street markets, or even cheaper if you make it yourself.
