There's ssam-thing sandwiched between Four Seasons Gourmet Market and Viet Baguette Café that ought to be the talk of the town, at least amongst those who work in the CBD. Operating mainly as a takeout joint (there are two bar tables that sit a max of three pax each) that bangs out healthy Korean and Mexican fusion grub, Ssam (which means 'wrapped' in Korean) is a fantastic choice for carnivores. The show-stoppers of this salad bowl are its meats — 40-hour Korean BBQ marinated beef short ribs, ginger soy chicken thigh, and the crowd favourite kimchi sweet and sour shoulder and pork belly with crackling skin (!). You can have a salad, rice bowl or burrito, of which the latter two come stuffed with a generous portion of cilantro lime rice, kimchi rice or hash browns. Opt for the Ssam Salad ($7.50-9 depending on your choice of protein) — think fragrant basil and romaine lettuce, with tangy kimchi and tomato salsa, onion lime relish, pickled cucumbers, kimchi and seaweed with unbelievably tasty beef short ribs, all topped with sesame seeds and fried shallots! For the herbivores, go for the equally tasty Sesame Soy Kimchi Tofu. Jinjja daebak!
