Everyone knows what kimchi goes well with.

It’s the PP&J for Koreans.

But my obsession with kimchi goes to a different kind of level. One that not many can understand.

After a long day’s work, all I want to do is eat something wholesome. Not chocolate or ice cream but actual food.

I remember coming home late at night and stuffing my face with a homemade sandwich like nobody’s business.

I’d be in the middle of this sandwich and milk, enjoying what a sandwich has to offer at 11pm at night, when I felt something was missing…

Like how Aussies love their vegemite and toast,

Side note – just wrong – what was wrong with the cheese !!!!

Germans innate love for their sauerkraut,

I like my kimchi when I’m eating a sandwich.

So in the middle of devouring my sandwich, I’d go to the kitchen, open one of those way to big clear glass jars that is perfect for storing an enormous amount of kimchi, but not so good for kitchen space, I’d take my chopsticks, take a a few chopsticks full of the good stuff, and put it on my plate.

I’d go back to my chair, take another bite of the sandwich while eating my kimchi.

It’s one the most comprehensive late night cravings that just works. If anyone’s seen Gordon Ramsey saying something ‘just works perfectly’ on TV, you know what I’m talking about.

Sometimes I eat ramen with kimchi but that’s kind of a given.

It’s one of the best combination of food I’ve ever put in my belly.

My brother’s guilty of this too.

This doesn’t happen all the time, but when it happens, I let it happen.
My tummy secretly tells me that it wants the sour and slightly hot but not so hot enough stuff that makes it go BOOM!

Does anyone eat kimchi with something other than ramen?
