Banchan are small side dishes in Korean cuisine that are complimentary to other main dishes or enjoyed alone.

It’s typically served with rice & intended to be shared.

Perilla LA is a reimagination of traditional Korean banchan in a contemporary, urban American setting. Inspired by the seasonal offerings of California’s farmers markets, each banchan takes chef Jihee Kim’s inventiveness and multi-cultural heritage and translates it into a small, savory, fresh dish worth remembering.
