As I understand from ROK (South Korea) friends, kimchi is made at the end of the summer and is in pots that are buried in the ground so they don't freeze. Personally, I am very fond of kimchi and bulgoki (a form of barbequed beef) while I find south Korean OB beer one of the best in the far East. I will admit, though, to oysters in a very high class Seoul restaurant one Friday night laying me up until late Monday and missing the Saturday flight out.....

While at lunch one day, the driver was happily eating cloves of garlic dipped in a red chilli pepper sauce that almost took the glaze off the dishes....They told me that Koreans have a high degree of stomach ulcers because of the amount of chilli pepper they eat.

But I haven't been there for many years now....and most likely, will never go again.
