Korean Drama weekly update: 11-19-17

Palama Supermarket, locally owned and operated by the Lim family, celebrates its 40th anniversary this month and part of the festivities is the inaugural Hansung Kimchi Festival in Hawaii. Kimchi grandmaster Kim Soon-ja has been officially recognized by the South Korean government in 2007 and her line of kimchi will be available for taste and purchase at all three Palama Supermarket stores through Tuesday.

Second generation owner Daniel Lim says “come taste truly authentic and delicious kimchi!” This is your chance to try many commonly known kimchi and the not so common varieties as there are at least nine different types of kimchi at this festival along with many banchan (side dishes). Some choices are: halved napa cabbage kimchi, radish kimchi, white kimchi, mustard kimchi, green onion kimchi and my favorite mini bossam roll kimchi. Hansung brand kimchi is supplied to many hotels throughout South Korea and Kim customizes her kimchi according to localized provincial tastes. Unfortunately, she will not be able to attend this year but is looking forward to next year.
