Kimchi & Pickled Garlic
I really enjoyed the Kimchi. In fact it was some of the best I’ve ever actually had. Had a very good flavor and really crisp snap to it. I feel like sometimes you just don’t get a good snap in the kimchi, which, for me is something I happen to really enjoy. Although I’m not sure if that is “authentic” or not, if it has that snap. But, I tend to like crispy things like that so this was a bonus for me.
This was a bit of a let down for me. After enjoying the kimchi so much I thought that the pickled garlic was going to be a home run – nope. Pretty average and just about below I’d say. I think it had some turnip in there, and some type of cabbage in it to. I’m wondering if those other parts of the dish kinda threw off the garlic itself? Maybe!
All in all – I enjoyed both of these side dishes though – obviously the kimchi more than the pickled garlic :)
