GIMME KIM­CHI

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Smartshopper Great Finds -

It’s im­pos­si­ble to de­cide which is the best­tast­ing kim­chi in ex­is­tence (there are over 180 va­ri­eties!), but we found four we liked.

• GANA CUT KIM­CHI $2 (150g), from Shine Korea #02-218A Ma­rina Square, tel: 6336-0607.

We en­joyed this soft, leafy ver­sion flecked with se­same seeds, which was slightly sweet and nei­ther too sour nor too spicy.

• MORE KOREAN KIM­CHI

$5.40 (400g), from Shine Korea

This kim­chi is for those who like it in­tense. With the strong­est aroma and flavour, it was saltier than the rest, but had a good bal­ance of sour­ness and spici­ness.

• CHONGGA MAT KIM­CHI $3.90 (200g), from Sol Mart #03-06/08 Novena Square 2, tel: 6397-6421.

The crunchy pieces of cab­bage burst in the mouth – the sour­ness hits the tongue be­fore a sub­tle spici­ness kicks in.

• EX­TRA SPICY MAT KIM­CHI

$3.20 (130g), from Sol Mart We found more stem than leaves in our tub, and those were a lit­tle too hard. This one is for those who like their kim­chi way more spicy than sour.
