Momo catering???

Maybe I shouldnt be shocked...but just tried to order a couple orders of the BO SSAM to go from Momo ssam for sunday. As stated on their menu, no delivery, which is a little painful, but doable; and no oysters which you can infer, again, prob still worth it. But heres the shocker...it does not come ready-to-eat! You have to reheat the pork for 20 min at 325 degrees. Same goes for the pork buns which I asked for as well. Also, the $250 does not include any plates, napkins, or utensils. Very dissapointed.

Anyway, Im coming to you for some advice...with no bo ssam, what are some good ideas to feed 25 guys watching football on sunday? Obviously Im looking for something interesting and worthy of chowhounders. Perhaps Daisy Mays whole pig? Thanks!!!!!!!

    Are you really complaining about reheating something for 20 minutes?

      When you order pizza for lunch at work, do you pick it up and expect to throw it in the oven?

        The bo ssam is one of the best things I ever tasted... Heating it yourself means that it will be hot and delicious, not warmed over and past its prime. If you can stand to actually turn on your oven you will have a memorable meal and the admiration of all of your friends!

          I totally agree, the bo ssam was on the top of my list. The problem is I wont be home, I do not have access to a oven! Never did I expect to have to warm it up after I picked it up. Anyway, any backup ideas that would be almost as good? Im stuck.

            If you don't need it during prime restaurant hours, you could explain your plight to them in advance and ask if they might heat it up for you. I'd skip the pork buns, though.

              i ordered the bo ssam for super bowl last year. it came with with the pork butt, lettuce wraps, sauces, cookies and nuts. pork was hot when we picked it up and didn't need to be reheated. but couldn't you just pick it up as soon as it's done cooking at the restaurant?
