Sam Gyup Sal (I spell'd it wrong originally) is unsmoked thick cut bacon grilled at your table. You wrap the pork in lettuce with a spicy bean paste (called Ssam Jang).

anyway, all these meats you cook at the table. you use scissors to cut em up, you get to play with your food. it is grand

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
