Porky and Porkie's (Korean BBQ)

Ray | Apr 2, 2006 11:39 PM

My wife and I go to P&P's every so often and enjoy the buffet offerings and the "hands on" cooking experience (plus, the chef is one of the best in the city, wink).

My question is really about the "proper" way to eat Korean BBQ. Obviously, anyone can eat however they like, but I'm curious if there is something I'm missing out on by not knowing the cultural significance of the food.

I know that some people roll their cooked meat into the lettuce leaves from the buffet. Are the side dishes they serve (dried fish, sprouts, kim chee, and the cucumber salad) meant to be eaten on the side or used as condiments rolled into the lettuce leaves with the cooked meat? Do you also add the rice into the lettuce leaves?

So if there are any Korean BBQ fanatics out there who can enlighten me about this, please speak up.

Thanks!!
