Catering - Side Dish

Typical Korean meals are named for the number of side dishes that accompany the ubiquitous rice, soup, and kimchi (fermented vegetables). Three dishes, five dishes, and up to twelve side dish meals are served depending upon the circumstances.

Side dish is set in the middle of the table to be shared. At the center of the table is the main course, such as Kalbi or Bulgogi, and sometimes shared pot of stew. Rice and soup are set individually.

Side dish is served in small portions, meant to be finished at each meal. They can be replenished during the meal as they are finished.

The more formal meals, the more side dishes appear in the table.
