The Holy Grail of wraps, tracing back at least 1,000 years in Korean cuisine. True to its literal meaning in Korean, Ssam is simply a "wrap" of several leafy greens bundling bite-sized meat like galbi and/or rice with a small dollop of  "SsamJang," a soybean paste condiment with a nutty, savory twang. We take Ssam to several next levels with 8 distinctly flavorful, nutrient-stuffed greens and our very own SsamJang! How to Eat Ssam video.

Ssam Box features a core set of:

1 Nine-Variety Ssamthing
1 LB Salanova or other Lettuce
1 Pack Garlic Chive Flowers
1 pack Sesame Leaf
2 pcs Squashini (or 6-Ball)
3 pcs K-Cuke
2 bunch Tokyo Negi

Pair your Ssam with bite-size morsels of your favorite meat, seasoned or unseasoned, or with rice or your favorite grain! Don't forget to top it with Negi-lettuce salad!

Tokyo-Negi Lettuce Ssam Salad:

1 head Salanova Lettuce
1 stalk Tokyo Negi
1 tbsp White Vinegar
1 tbsp Sesame Oil

1/2 tbsp Seasoned Sesame Salt (optional)
1/2 tbsp GochuJang (optional)
1/2 tbsp Sugar (optional)

1. Cut the Negi lengthwise into fine slices (stripping with a fork multiple times works well too) and soak in water for 20-30 min. This makes the Negi milder.

2. Chop the lettuce as you would for salad and set aside.

3. Drain the Negi then add it with the lettuce into a large mixing bowl, and toss with vinegar, sesame oil, and the optional items, add salt/pepper to adjust to taste. Optional items infuse savory, sweet & mildly-spicy twang to the salad!

Please note that the list may change depending on availability,
but we'll try to notify here as far in advance as possible of such changes.
