That’s why you frequently see patrons in Korean restaurants pacing back and forth, refilling this bright condiment like moths to a flame. There are a plethora of kimchis around, varying in a gradation of colours and flavours. The most common one is the reddish hue kimchi which is often done with Chinese cabbage, radish, garlic, red pepper, spring onion, salt, and sugar, then stored in jars under room temperature. It reminds you of wine – the longer you store it, the deeper the taste develops. Once it taps onto your taste buds, you’ll be bombarded with a spicy and sour ride.
