BORI IS THE TRANSLITERATION OF THE KOREAN WORD FOR “BARLEY”
Barley has been farmed in Korea since as early as 1000 B.C. Its long presence in Korea has much to do with its ability to grow under harsh weather conditions and even on treacherous terrain. The sturdiness of barley sustained the lives of many Koreans during times of famine, war, and oppression. Due to its resilience in difficult times, barley symbolized a form of relief to suffering people.
These are some of the reasons why barley holds a sentimental significance to the nation of Korea, and this is why BORI Korean BBQ Restaurant would like to honor the importance of barley with a spirit of gratitude and perseverance.
