|Savor the equally tasty, mul kimchi (water kimchi)|
So much has been written about the kimchi, that red hot-sour side dish that spices up every Korean food lover’s dining table. But very little is known about one of its obscure siblings, the mul kimchi, also known as the water (‘mul’ in Korean) kimchi.
I first heard of this different kind of kimchi from my regular supplier, Oppa Kimchi. I thought that it might not be that delicious or it could be bland, judging from the lack of lively color like the usual red variety. When I had my first bite, I knew then that it would be added to my regular line-up in the pantry.
