Why do Korean households have 2 fridges? Spicy Road has good tip for a “spicy” weekend trip.
MODERN grey highways and high skyscrapers versus colorful ANCIENT royal palace… a weekend in the capital city of Korea, Seoul -over 10 million inhabitants- was impressive! The opportunity to explore history and the modern city at the same time doesn’t happen everyday – especially if you get the chance to visit a local family.
In most countries we have one fridge, not in Korea. ONE FRIDGE FOR THE FERMENTED CABBAGE (Kimchi)!! And another one for normal food. I love pickles but in Korea they are different, they use cabbage! Koreans eat in average 20 kilos of this super-spicy condiment per head every year. The quantities are so huge that every household would need to have a second fridge just for kimchi. To store it and to control proper fermentation process. In Korea, kimchi is consumed all the time and used for everything from burgers, pancakes, pizza, whatever you can imagine!
