@Tropical_Willie I have no kimchi in my refrigerator but this question has inspired me to make sure I have, if not two kinds of kimchi in my refrigerator, to have at least some kimchi in my refrigerator.
Even though I’ve lived in Korea, I’ve never had it. My father grew to like it during the time we where there though. The rest of my family never dared to try it.
But oh, Bulgogi, dried seaweed eaten straight out of the packet, ramen noodles and rice, dumplings with glass noodles, meat and vegetables…..Lotte’s chewing gum with rose flavour!
I miss Korea!
@gondwanalon Don’t worry about the smell. It only smells like something rotten because that’s what it is. Consider it partially digested cabbage. It’s marinated in spices that keep all the bad bugs at bay. Quite healthful to eat, in fact. But avoid it if you don’t like spicy food.
I love it but haven’t tasted really good since last visit to Seoul. Is there a brand available outside of Korea that you recommend? I love all Korean food actually, hot and healthy, what more could you want. I was recently in Cairns, top end of oz, there is a fairly large Korean community there and they made their own kimchi, it was excellent, also the Bibimbap, that was wonderful!
@Tropical_Willie That actually sounds pretty good… julienned radishes in chili oil… something I have never had… but radishes are their own kind of hot and chilis are another kind of hot… the two together could be kind of interesting.
