In search of ssam...korean "burrito" like Momofuku in NYC

bakersdozen | Nov 11, 2007 05:42 PM

A few months back, I was visited NYC and went to Momofuku in the East Village. I had a ssam which is like a korean burrito with juicy shredded pork, edamame, white rice, a touch of kim chi and cucumber in a thin pancake wrapper like a tortilla. It was so good and unique! It was very different from anything I've had in LA....and I like korean food! Has anyone found anything similar here in LA?

Here is their menu with a better description of their ssam.

I also went to Joe's Shanghai while there, and have been trying to find similar soup dumplings (Xiao Long Bao). I went to Din Tai Fung...but still it still didn't hit the spot! I'm still trying to find these as well!

Any thoughts?
