I'm ok with this.

Blech.

Ironic?

My ten year old likes it enough I ended up making myself to save money. I introduced him to it under the guise of 'Army food'.

I made the mistake of walking into my Korean friend's house when his mom was unsealing a batch one day in high school. To this day, I don't think I've smelled anything worse, and I work with dead bodies and sick people leaking a variety of fluids.

Lots of fiber.

So does tree bark. I'd rather eat that.

Heck no! Glazed donuts wll be the food of choice in 2013...

I love kimchi! It was banned at home, and at work due to the smell, so now I can only sneak it. Yummmm!

no. fark that.

If you like Kimchi, eat it. It sure is good for you.

I've liked it, and have been eating it, since 1981.

You are free to like it or hate it. Don't expect me to care, though.

Why the kimchi hate? And why the brussels sprout love?

wildcardjack: Why the kimchi hate? And why the brussels sprout love?


If you don't like the smell of brussel sprouts, you only really smell them up close. Kimchi goes everywhere, permeates even granite, and will linger for days. Especially if yu have the misfortune to hang around someone who eats it. The kimchi farts are enough to strip chrome off a bumper.

Kimchi dates back 2000 years to the ding dong dynasty.
 
2012-12-31 08:01:25 AM
I hope it doesn't get too popular. My Asian grocery store makes their own and sells it at a rather reasonable price.

wildcardjack: Why the kimchi hate? And why the brussels sprout love?


Because, when my wife makes Brussels sprouts, she uses bacon.
 
2012-12-31 08:03:47 AM
I suspect that most folks that claim to hate kimchi have never actually tasted any.

(I'd like it if it wasn't Asian, though)

It's all fun and games until you end up like I did, at Kunsan, AB with a flatulent roomate who drank nothing but Soju and ate his weight in that shiat every day.
 
2012-12-31 08:12:35 AM
Nothing wrong with a little Korean Sauerkraut.

/Your sauerkraut is now Gangnam style
 
2012-12-31 08:13:09 AM

Krieghund: I'm ok with this.


Not me, Fibber McGee. tell you why, slice o pie: Will soon become viciously over priced as dooshbag foodies and noobs run amuck while to devour it as restaurants profit with glees. This has happened to way too many peasant/commoner foods as well as tasty 'sleeper' bottles of wine. I hate that. The prices goes up and never returns to sanity.
 
2012-12-31 08:13:12 AM
Kimchi is amazingly delicious. I love to mix it with shredded pork or beef and rice... mmMmMm
 
2012-12-31 08:13:29 AM
I've said it many times before - I don't like sauerkraut, but I do like kimchi.
 
2012-12-31 08:13:43 AM
About 40 years ago, I was in the service with a guy who's unit was 'attacking in a different direction' in Korea in 1951 or so. He ran through some back yard and fell into a barrel of kimchi and was captured.

He was not a fan of the stuff.

What's wrong with brussels sprouts???? THEY ARE THE BEST VEGETABLE BY FAR!

OK maybe. Best? Nope. I can think of half a dozen veggies that are better.

lilplatinum: Kimchi dates back 2000 years to the ding dong dynasty.


I wanted to like it. I really do enjoy other Korean foods that I've tried. After several tries from different places I just can't like it. It's gross. I don't mind if other people enjoy it, but I honestly don't know why.

Also bell peppers are the worst thing scientists claim to be edible. I know my tastes are a little off from most people.
 
2012-12-31 08:19:15 AM
Our department was stuffed into a couple of small offices with one common doorway; you went through our little office to get to the even tinier one in the back. So one day a gal working in the back office decided that her sinuses were stuffed up and that kimchi would be a good thing to open them up with.

Didn't get the smell out of the offices for weeks.
 
2012-12-31 08:19:18 AM
I love me some Korean food.

Pork neck bone soup with Kimchi is pretty bad ass.

Hell Yes.

Maybe to you, but to me sprouts are king. I am a cabbage whore.

That's my new band name, right there.

If they made kimchi with Brussels sprouts I'd be a happy man indeed...

1) Go to Korean restaurant
2) Get a kimchi pancake

I thought this was brussel sprouts. I'm going to leave it anyways.

I like Kimchi but I don't like it when it's fizzy. That's just... wrong.

Stinky tofu. A good stinky tofu shop smells up at least a block radius, and the name says it all, really.

Ahhhh takes me back to my 2LT days in the land of the morning calm. Nothing like walking into a heated train car from the cold in the winter months. As soon as the door opened.....BAM Kimchi and dried squid smell smacks you.

Why does the fact that it's Asian matter? If it's yummy, it's yummy; if it's not yummy, it's not yummy.

Is Kimchi carcinogenic, anti-carcinogenic, or both?

I'll be your number one fan!

I went to a hole i the wall restaurant in Shanghai. Smelled pretty bad, but my Chinese pals told me it was good. Charcoal pit in the middle of the dirty table for skewers of meats. Then out came the stinky tofu. OMFG, worst taste ever. I downed my beer and then like 10 'beef' sticks after to try to clear u the taste

Remember your high school gym locker room? The smell of old gym shoes, sweat socks and unwashed jock straps? That's what kimchi tastes like. It tastes like that smell. Disgusting.

2) Get a kimchi pancake

Had one of those last week.  mmmmmmmm is right!

My wife is Korean and I LOVE it!  Nothing better than some white rice and kimchi.  Damn, now I'm hungry.

I've also never eaten a steaming bowl of fermented diarrhea either. Don't need to to know it would taste like shiat, though. The smell is enough warning.

Oh god, the stuff that's labeled stinky is gawdawful overfermented stuff. Smells like something died and was left in a hot car for 3 weeks. The "regular" stuff is just lightly fermented and is like Chinese blue cheese. Decent stuff if you have the taste for it, but the ultra fermented stuff is deadly.
