Young Radish Kimchee

I made this discovery way too late. Way. Too. Late. Have you guys heard of young radish kimchee? Oh my gosh, it is so good! Here’s the story. I went to Queen’s Supermarket to grab my usual kimchee and decided to try some of the fresh kimchee selections. I saw the whole radish kimchee and totally had to try it. I love watching Korean dramas and those crazy people who take a bite out of the whole radish in the middle of the night out of anger. I’m weird, I know. Anyhow, there is this leafy green on top of the radish and I enjoyed it at a lot. Then I realized they sell the leafy tops on their own! It’s called young radish kimchee and it is glorious. The texture is what makes it the best. It looks a bit like choy sum but has the texture of super crisp ong choy. It’s SO good. Please give it a try when you have the chance!


Crunchy. Fresh. Delicious. Spicy. Awesome.

Chongga Kimchi

The other week, I had to wait two hours at Costco to get my tire fixed so I had a lot of time to browse.  I happened upon their cold cases and saw a bottle of kimchee I wanted!  No, not Halm’s kimchee.  But you know what?  I haven’t had Halm’s in the longest time!  The kimchee I saw was Chongga Kimchi and it was imported from Korea!  I just HAD to try it.



Apparently it’s the #1 kimchi brand in the world.  I don’t know how they got a title like that but I’ll go with it.  So how is it?  The first few bites, I thought it was just all right.  Tasted a bit sour and I didn’t think it was great.  Well as I started eating more…the flavor was definitely better.  I like it a lot.  It’s only about 7 dollars for this jar of kimchee so I think it’s a great deal.  I hope Costco continues to carry it but you know that they continually switch up their goods.  If you like kimchee, I highly suggest you give this a try!  It’s only been about a week and I’m almost done with it.  I’m a kimchee freak!
