A pack of ssam cost $5.50 and consists of two thick rolls pre-wrapped with vegetables and cooked meats (choice of either prawn, chicken or beef). I couldn't help myself staring at the fat succulent prawns and picked up a prawn ssam pack and a miso soup to go (a cup of miso costs only $1 if you buy a lunch item from Bibaps). I can so picture Jono shaking his head in disapproval because I've been naughty again, eating prawns (I've a mild allergy to crustaceans)...but there are only 6! Refraining from crustaceans is SO hard when I love eating them!
Back at my work desk and it was time to 'dissect' the wollamssam hehe...Each roll consisted of three chillied prawns and was filled with plenty of shredded mixed leaf lettuce, a strip of cucumber and capsicum each, as well as a few strands of alfalfa sprouts. The ssam pack came with a small bottle of dipping sauce for the rolls - I put a few drops onto my roll and on first bite, I didn't think it was at all spicy so added a lot more on my ssam before taking a second bite. Woah, that really gave quite a kick! The dipping sauce had a nice sweetish zing and an explosive spiciness when it hits your mouth, making it a great compliment to the simple and plain ssam. Hmm, might be a new regular for me...Photos taken of my yummy lunch:
