how many people does the bo ssam at momofuku feed?
We have a reservation for the bo ssam tomorrow, an it'll be a group of 11 people (1 or 2 with extraordinary appetites, I would say.) Will this be enough food or should we order some extra items from the regular menu?
It will feed your entire group pretty easily, but it is monotonous. I think people burn out after their 3rd helping. I would add on some appetizers just for variety.
PS the Bo Ssam also reheats and freezes quite well, surprisingly.
It depends. I've had it with 6 dudes, we order a bunch of appetizers, and we barely finished the Ssam.
I've had it with 4 dudes and 6 girls and a bunch of apps and we got through it, but it's true, people do burn out. I'd say with a party of 11, order some oysters, some buns, and maybe 2 other apps and you'll be good.
