Yub, a good friend of mine and the president of the Korean Society (I might have to fact-check this one) managed to get ahold of the Kimchi Bus which travels from country to country, city to city.
Because I’m reserving my good words for an article which I will be writing for the paper (it also doesn’t help that I’m on nyquil), I’m posting the website here to find out some of the details yourself. I can however, provide my humble opinion on the kimchi samplings I had today.
Pictured is the kimchi assortment, as a whole (pre-cut). My personal favorite was the one next to the cucumbers. I believe it was a Napa Cabbage kimchi with a lot of spice and umami accompanied it. Honestly one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. And I can confirm this statement without the nyquil.
Below is a kimchi burrito, as well as the various kimchi samples. The burrito had kimchi (the personal favorite - I’d like to believe, at least), regular cabbage, ground beef, and a kimchi-based mayonnaise. I would say it was more of a wrap, but the labeling does not really tarnish the quality of the product.
Role reversals - Yub educating Dr. Murphy (who teaches History of Asias as well as Americas) a little about Kimchi and Korean Culture.
So yes. As usual, this experience was both great for the palate as well as the brain (I actually read the flyer, so I might add more information to this.)
