In Korea, they don’t say cheese when taking a photo, they say kimchi. It’s considered the national food, and many people eat it as an accompaniment at every meal. Because of its popularity, there is an entire museum dedicated to this Korean staple food.
Exhibits at the Kimchi Field Museum show how kimchi is made, explain the different types of kimchi, discuss the nutritional benefits of kimchi, and explore the history of kimchi in Korea and why it’s become an important cultural symbol. Visitors can even take a kimchi making class. A bonus, the museum is located in Insadong, a traditional Korean neighborhood where nearly every restaurant serves, you guessed it, kimchi.
