Three Layer Fat

It's about 8° in New York right now and I need to build up a good layer of fat to keep me warm this winter. Regular, thin, crispy bacon is not going to cut it. So last night at Won Jo, along with our typical array of meats, we ordered Sam Gyup Sal which literally translates to "three layer fat." Exactly what I need! (I should point out that I am only about 90 lbs.) I've never had Korean bacon before—it was quite tasty! The texture was a very interesting crispy/chewy combination. But (sorry Seong!) I have to agree with my friend Eric, I still prefer good old American bacon.
