At our favorite Japanese restaurant, we enjoy a dish called Tako Kim Chi. It's cucumber and octopus covered with kim chi sauce. Such an easy recipe to recreate, but since I'm not proficient in octopus preparation, I will leave that treat for when we eat out.
What we do instead is chop up cucumbers from the garden and drizzle kim chi sauce over it. The sauce was hard to find because you typically can't find it at your local grocery store. I had to go to an Asian market to find it.
You know what shocked me the most at the market? It wasn't the embryonic, purple eggs or the numerous bottles of fish parts pickled, fermented, salted, etc. What shocked me the most was the isle of bagged MSG. I try to avoid every trace of the stuff in my diet and yet there were bags and bags of it up and down the isle.
