The Korean Diaspora: Do we still eat Kimchi?
After a long day’s work, all I want to do is eat something wholesome. Not chocolate or ice cream but actual food.
I remember coming home late at night and stuffing my face with a homemade sandwich like nobody’s business.
I’d be in the middle of this sandwich and milk, enjoying what a sandwich has to offer at 11pm at night, when I felt something was missing…
Like how Aussies love their vegemite and toast,
Germans with their sauerkraut
I like my kimchi when I’m eating my snack.
So in the middle of devouring my sandwich, I’d go to the kitchen, open one of those way to big clear jars that is perfect for storing an enormous amount of kimchi, but not so good on kitchen space as it takes up a lot of room, I’d take my chopsticks, take a a few chopsticks full of it, and put it on my plate, go back to my chair, and take another bite of the sandwich whilst eating my kimchi.
It’s one the most comprehensive late night cravings that just works.
Sometimes I eat ramen with kimchi but that’s kind of a given.
It’s one of the best combination of food I’ve ever put in my belly.
My brother’s guilty of this too.
This doesn’t happen all the time, but when it happens, I let it happen. If I don’t, my tummy secretly tells me that it wants the sour and slightly hot but not so hot enough stuff that makes it go BOOM!
Does anyone eat kimchi with something other than ramen?
