Hi Readers,
There are many new Korean restaurants in town these days. Korean food are now very popular and today, we will be sharing on how to make Kimchi, the most well known basic dish. Kimchi (a.k.a. kimchee) is a raw, pickled vegetable concoction indispensible to Korean cuisine. Kimchi usually includes tiny fish or shrimp. We found that this spicy fermented side dish is quite easy to make, and will keep for many weeks in the fridge, slowly growing tangier.

There are many types of kimchi eaten in Korea. Baechu kimchi, the most common variety, is made with Chinese cabbage. To make a batch of baechu kimchi:
5 heads of Chinese cabbage
2-3 heads of garlic
3 cups of salt
2 cups of red pepper powder [see below]
1-2 knobs of ginger
optional: chopped scallions or watercress, cubed daikon radish
Red pepper powder (kochukaru in Korean), a coarse powder of chili pepper flakes, can be found in any store selling Korean foodstuffs. It is made from a pepper of medium heat. If using a hotter pepper, use less (but kimchi is supposed to be spicy)!

Wash the Chinese cabbage well, remove the outermost leaves and trim off the root. Traditionally, the heads are split lengthwise, and made into kimchi in this form. I recommend cutting the cabbage into smaller pieces, as follows: After splitting lengthwise, cut out a bit of the solid mass near the root. Laying halves flat side down, make 3 lengthwise cuts along each half. Then chop widthwise into one inch wide sections.

Place the chopped cabbage into a large bowl or basin. Take 2 cups of the salt and make a brine with 15 or so cups of water. Pour the saltwater over the cabbage, and mix well. Let this stand for at least one hour.

Chop up garlic and ginger. The amount you use is up to you. I never use exact amounts...and I've always enjoyed the result, even if it sometimes comes out more gingery or garlicy or spicy than usual.The only thing you really need to make kimchi is the salt: since this is a raw food, a certain amount of salt is needed to pickle and preserve the cabbage.

Mix the garlic, ginger, 1.5 or so cups of red pepper and the remaining 1 cup of salt with a half cup or so of water. Mix it well. Your mixing hand will start to tingle. Relish this sensation.

Once the cabbage has soaked for an hour in brine, drain off all of the liquid, then rinse the cabbage and drain again well.Mix the paste from above into the cabbage. Add optional ingredients mentioned above, if desired. Mix it all up well, until the paste coats the cabbage evenly.Mix it up some more!

Once it's thoroughly mixed, place the mixture into very clean containers. Fill containers close to the rim.If there is some red liquid left over, pour it into each container. You don't want any air pockets in the kimchi containers, and you do want the cabbage to soak in this kimchi juice.

Clean off the lips of the containers, and put on lids. Do NOT tighten lids too hard. Let the containers sit at room temperature for 2-3 days, and as they begin to ferment, air will bubble out and containers may leak a bit.Traditionally, kimchi is put into ceramic crocks and buried in the earth. You can put yours in the fridge. At fridge temperature, it will continue to slowly pickle, getting more tangy with time.You did it! You made your own kimchi! Enjoy.

The uniqueness of this restaurant is, it has an open kitchen and the chef's cooking in action is easily seen by the customers. Diners can enjoy viewing the chef's rolling the pizza dough and how the food is served. Another special thing about the food here, is the pizza and noodles are made from scratch upon ordering.

Let me introduce the menu, first there are a wide varieties of Pizzas. We ordered Louisiana (RM17) that has thinly slices of salami, onion, tomato, fresh chili, olives and basil . Its delicious as it has a thin crust and is crispy at the edge. You can taste the freshness of the tomato paste and the tasty salami.

Second is the great choice of pasta. The pasta is served with freshly grated cheese and two stick of bread. Let me present to you the most special pasta of the day that is the Truz (RM17) as it comes with Cajun spiced chicken, bananas in the cream sauce. There are tiny slices of bananas that enhances and creates a very nice taste towards the pasta. I could say it really has a unique taste in it compare to other pastas. For banana lover, you will definitely give thumbs up on this dish.

Next would be the Confetti Corleone (RM17) that has chicken with capsicum, peas, onion, olives in roasted garlic cream sauce. As for this dish you can either choose for chicken, beef pepperoni or vegetarian. The roasted huge chuck of garlic in this dish does create an unbelievable aroma.

These are a few of the chef specialty we ordered. Calzone (RM18) would be a wrapped up pizza dough baked with turkey ham, tomato, basil, capsicum, onion, tomato sauce and cheese. The dough will rise when its baked till golden brown. It taste really good and its indeed a very creative dish.

Next would be the Chicken Pot Pie (RM16) with the filling chucks of chicken, peas, carrots, and potatoes, white cream sauce baked with pie-crust cover and served together with some side salad. The cream sauce is not too creamy, good for my liking come with the nice salad.

We also ordered mushroom soup but we find the soup kind of bland thought they have nice minced mushroom in it. It could be nice if it is creamier.

The orange color pumpkin soup did not catch my attention at first but surprisingly it taste awesome. It is much richer compare to the mushroom soup and you are able to taste the boiled pumpkin sweetness.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Last but not least comes the one and only dessert left available at the shop for us. Let me present to you the Crème Brulee. The egg custard pudding topped with a layer of hard caramel. It is a bit cold when it’s been served to us. The top layer of the sugar is slightly burned as not in perfection. You are able to find some raisin and coffee inside of it. Overall we still did enjoy the last piece of dessert that each of us only manage to have few scoop as it comes in small portion.

The smoked Salmon and oysters served among the appetizers in the semi-buffet session were very fresh and I was tempted to have another serving. The main dishes are well presented. Here goes:
