Kimchi Restaurant - ANNYEONG HASEYO!!

A popular Korean dining experience, where you can have good Korean BBQ, soups and lovely desserts, with welcoming d├ęcor and good service staff, Kimchi restaurant is my preferred Korean place.

Kimchi restaurant is located at Regenct in Kiulap. If you don't know where that is, it's the same area as Deseo, National Insurance Branch and also the new Excapade Sushi Branch in Qlap.
Kimchi uses nontick hotplates so your food's not likely to stick to the plate while you're cooking. They also got exhaust on top of all bbq tables to absorb all the smoke and smell from the BBQ so you won't walk out of the restaurant smelling like smoked beef. Korean food is of course, not just BBQ. They have a wide variety of choices below!

You can eat the BBQ meats on their own but koreans like to wrap their meats with fresh lettuce leaves, sliced onions, shallots or garlic and a little bit (or a lot) of Korean hot bean paste.

My love for cheese

I had to admit it. I love cheese… more than any famous mouse you can imagine. When I hit those high end buffets – I would be nom nom-ing the cheeses from the cheese board and pairing them with fruits like rock melon, honeydew, apples, grapes or jam.

When my friend was coming back from Australia and offered to bring back cheeses for me. I chose a triple cream brie and a blue cheese. Friend picked the famous Australian Blue Cheese – the King Island Roaring Forties and also their triple cream brie. I did a research and found it’s actually pretty good.

The Roaring Forties Blue Cheese – You can’t eat the wax btw ~~ my parents squirmed at the smell while I savoured it! It’s either you love it or hate it ~~ like Durian ~~

“If I could force feed (in a friendly way) every blue naysayer one type of mouldy fromage, this would be it. Buttery yellow and encased in black wax, its flavour is full but not sharp. More memorable are the sweet, fruity and nutty notes. It’s firm, creamy and one of my favourite cheeses – in any category. Named after the “roaring 40s,” perilous westerly winds that blow along the 40th latitude where King Island is located, the milk comes from the island’s own herds renowned for their pure, sweet milk.” from http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/holiday-guide/blue-cheese-how-to-serve-this-christmas-classic/article4247880/

The Triple Cream Brie is smooth soft and creamy. Oh I can’t wait to sink my teeth onto this too!

Now the question is – how do you usually enjoy cheese? Most people would say enjoy it with wine and crackers but there’s more to that. Cheese can go well with some tangy sweet fruits, honey and jam while some even smear it with butter on toast! Although purists would argue that mellowing them out with butter or honey would spoil a good cheese. I feel some ingredients enhance the cheese while some just don’t work out.

Ready for my cheese board!

Honeycomb and honey adds a fragrant sweet touch to your cheeses~

Concentrated fig jam with dried figs and sesame seeds for crunch!

DSCF6714

The naked blue cheese ~~ stripped of it’s wax ~~oooh yes ~~

DSCF6716

I must say – honeycomb go very well with the triple cream brie and crackers! Delicious!

DSCF6721

I can’t say the same for the blue cheese with honeycomb. Not the best combination.

DSCF6722

DSCF6724

This blue cheese does go well with grapes and apples!

DSCF6725

I must say ~ fig jam goes very well with both the blue cheese and the creamy brie!

DSCF6726

Oh sweet brie with fig jam! Yummers!!

An interesting use for blue cheese is to make them into ice cream! I might try this some other time but if you’re interested – there’s a recipe for it! Click on the ice cream picture.

Would you dare to dry this blue cheese ice cream? I would!!
