Why don't Korean Restaurants pack up leftover Panchan?

Wanda_Gorgonzola | Jun 5, 2010 01:50 PM

I've asked several times, at several different restaurants.....I never get a direct answer, and I never get the Panchan in my bag. I am aware that at some places, it may be a language issue, as I don't speak Korean. I only ask when there is a significant amount left and if there are other (ordered) leftovers.....

Does anyone know if there's a cultural thing of which I am not aware. Is it 'bad form' to send people/guest home?

I know I may sound foolish, but I always feel a little odd not finishing the Panchan, as though I'm not grateful for the 'gift' :)....not to mention the waste factor......
