    I recently bought some jarred kimchi from the same brand I usually get, just a different store. It seems very sweet. Does this mean it’s newer? I really like my kimchi sour. Should I leave it out of the fridge for a while? I made chamchi kimchi jjigae yesterday and I had to add some rice vinegar to make it taste right. Has this happened to anyone else before? Does anyone here like sweeter kimchi? I plan on making my own kimchi in the future, but for now the jarred one is better than nothing.

    Also, what is the name of the Korean folding dining tables? I would really like to buy one online, but I can’t seem to find a place that ships overseas. I know about Japanese chabudai, but they are usually round, which is not what I want. I tried g-market, but every seller that had the table I was looking for didn’t ship overseas. If anyone knows of a place, please share! Thank you!



    I think they aren’t ready for your use.

    Let it ferment fully and I think you might get what you want.

    It happens over here too, but not quite often.

    In korea, some plastic packed kimchi’s are sold with instructions like.

    “if you want it fresh chose the one with more expiration date left,

    if you want it fully fermented, chose the one with less expiration date left”

    and also they tell you the exact number, which unfortunately I dont have.

    Maybe there aren’t any instructions written on the jars over there…

    My suggestion? next time try to look for the one with less expiration date left,

    and you’ll have a hell of a chamchi jjigae.

    The name of korean folding dining table?

    If they are


    these …… the name is Kyoja sang, or simply babsang.

    If you’re going for a

    simple modern plywood with steel legged one -> babsang 밥상

    More antique, looking one -> kyoja sang, or gyoja sang 교자상

    I found this one at google shopping


    and this one


    Just go for keywords Korean table or something and I think you’ll find plenty.



    Thanks chirp! The jar I have has no expiration date or instructions. I just took it out of the fridge. I guess I’ll let it sit on the table for a while. hehe

    And thanks for the table info! I’d really like to invest in one.
