3. A Brief Introduction To SSambap 쌈밥

Indian people eat with their hand without using pork or knife. And Korean people eat with their hand when they have “ssambap”.

They put rice and “ssamjang” on various begetables, and eat with their hand. If you have ever eaten famous Korean foods like bulgogi, galbi and pork belly, you would experience Korean “ssam culture”. Even though it is inconvenient, it has been special food culture of Korea for a long time.

According to Nongga Wollyeongga, the old document in 1800s, many farmers ate ssambap in countryside.

Ssambap originated from “deulbap”, as farmers ate rice wrapped in vegetables after working in a field.
