Kimchi -after midnight

I eat it with a fork out of the jar during old movies (alone). C'hound got me hooked, and I don't know whether to throw rocks at you or kiss your cheek. And midnight was an exaggeration. Ten o'clock is my limit, and a thousand people have told me not to exaggerate.
Getting to the point; what goes best with Kimchi, apre-dinner?

  1. Hey, if you're already watching a movie, try some popcorn!
    I am an "out-of-the-jar" Kimchee guy, too- so I'll pop a batch of popcorn, lightly butter, then sprinkle with a bit of salt and a pinch of sugar (like a kettle corn flavor)- the texture contrasts with the cabbage nicely!

    1. From my military days, pre marriage - (and when I'm home alone)
      Any of the below cut, pressed, or formed in small enough pieces to be wrapped in the kimchi leaves -
      Hot dogs
      chicken nuggets
      tofu cubes
      rice balls (cold rice formed into balls)
      cold meatballs
      leftover cold fried chicken
      bacon pieces
      pork belly chunks
      whole garlic cloves
      red or green whole peppers (mild or hot)

      1. Kimchi goes surprisingly well with hotdogs. I like it with roast and BBQ pork, too.

          i tried kim chi on my hot dog this weekend and i think it made my life... not literally... but damn close.

        2. Spicy kimchee on cucumber slices or wrapped around grape tomatoes.

          1. I'm partial to topping melba toast with kimchi and washing it all down with some scotch, neat.

            Or, I'll stuff some pita with kimchi along with some peanut butter.

              Wow, kimchi and peanut butter. So unexpected I think I'll try it.

              Kimchi on pizza is quite good. Of course, it requires that you also have cold pizza in the fridge.

                scotch? wow. i'm picturing a small bowl of kimchi and a glass of macallan laid out before me and my brow is furrowed with indecision.

                for me, kimchi goes well with leftover barbecue. and by barbecue think texas brisket, not korean grilled meats.
