  11. Horrors! What would be the point? Actually in surfing the internet I've found many, many Korean recipes for kimchi that include some sugar. I've never used it when I make my own though. ← when you let the kimchee ferment, youre letting the lactic acid producing bacteria thats found on the cabbage break down the starch/sugars in the cabbage, adding sugar gives the bacteria a little help... a head start on reproducing kimchee and sauerkraut are suppose to be good for you cause 1. theyve broken down the vitamins/minerals for you, making it easier to absorb 2. maintains proper colonization of the gut mmm kimchee protects chickens from avian flu didnt use this as a reference... but wiki is awesome http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimchee
  12. http://www.kimchi.or.kr/eng/about/history.html fairly comprehensive kimchee site
  13. i'm an american born chinese... ive never really seen anyone ask for soy and mustard at a chinese restaurant before maybe at dimsum, people will ask for la jiao (chili paste) and mustard... at dinner, maybe la jiao and vinegar, the black kind, shanghai vinegar? but not very often, and i guess it depends on what else youve ordered eh... mass produced non fermented soy sauce is scary anyhow thats near the zoo right? i know the owner's kids, only been there once though for dimsum i think you just answered your own question, or pre-answered it most asian people probably woudlnt order the wonton or the hot sour soup havent had soup at a chinese restaurant in a long time, either cantonese or shanhai restaurants... usually got some sort of winter melon soup some restaurant give you free "soup" usually just some sort of stock that they made with left over bones... but its usually good
