I was just saying how hard it is to get real vegan kimchi when, walking down Waterloo’s “Lower Marsh” on my way to collect my trendy new Tom Ford glasses I come across these charming people.
Not only do they claim to make their own vegan kimchi, they’re frying up mung bean fritters, my absolute Korean street favourite.
Back at base my glasses fit perfectly. I haven’t yet been told how handsome they make me look but already I’m pretty pleased. The mung fritters are nearly as good as Brandon’s. The kimchi? No detectable fishiness, big in savoury deliciousness. Natural umami or MSG?
I claim no ill effect from MSG other than a thirst a barrel of beer can’t quench. Putting the acid-test into action I polish off the lot and wait – in vain – for thirst.
