Mister Bossam, A New Pork Belly Purveyor Now Fattening Up Koreatown

Not all meat in Koreatown comes on a tabletop grill.

Restaurant concepts continue to jump the pond from Asia to the U.S., and the latest from Korea, called Mister Bossam, specializes in the boiled and roasted pork belly dish. First reported by Midtown Lunch, a lunch platter starts at $10 with a very generous portion of pristine pork belly, banchan, ssam greens, and either green onion, red chili, or garlic sauce. Open about a month ago, Mister Bossam also has larger dinner portions ranging from $22 to 26. Oh and Midtown Lunch does mention the dish inspired by Koreatown itself: a platter of spicy pork ribs studded with a molten cheese moat.
