Hallo nysya,

may I ask, just out of curiosity: What is it that would make ‘normal’ Korean Kimchee non-halal? Is it the fermentation process, which gives it a vinegar-like taste, and is vinegar considered non-halal, because it was alcohol before?

Thank you in advance,

Tanni xx

P.S. I was in Malaysia last year and I loved it! Especially Penang cuisine, because it was similar to Thai food (my cultural roots) :)
