      Hilarious comment, not sure why it gets negged to oblivion.

        Because jv

        What's the punchline

      • Kimchi is like 2000-3000 years old, so before the the North/South divide by a few thousand years.

  • +2

    These deals are active now. Saw them in store yesterday in Epping

  • I didn't realise Costco did Tegal chicken, 1.8kg chicken portions for $16 is pretty good compared to the usual $14 for 1kg at colesworth and $12 on sale.

    • +1

      Costco doesn't always have it in stock. Usually only have the spicy Nashville ones.
      Costco have been selling the tegal at least 2 or 3 years now.

    About time the Kimchi came back in stock >:(

    Yummm Kimchi is so delicious and also keeps your stomach healthy 😋

  • Anyone tried this particular Kimchi? Thoughts?

    • +1

      This brand was recommended to my by a Korean friend and I have never looked back.

        I had this last week,it was i went back yesterday to buy another one, to stock up for bbq at home. Also buy the rumpcap($19.99/kg) is very nice to slice the beef and do table bbq using iwatani plate grill..
        I bought from costco dockland (was already on special from last week), YMMV.

        • +1

          I don't mind the kimchi. Taste can depend on where the kimchi is in it's lifecycle but it happens to all kimchi. Too far along and it can be pretty sour.

          My wife isn't a big fan but we do buy it from time to time as the price is pretty good. My wife prefers to make her own kimchi but it takes time and effort and the cabbage itself can be very expensive.

            @ozbs25: At some stage, my local asian groceries selling $3/box..yes it is $3 for 1 big box of wombok (maybe 5/6 pcs in a box)..
            But true though if it is fermented far too long will be too sour..
            But for 1.2kg for big jar..definitely a bargain, compare with local store $5 you got small tub..

            And taste is like kimchi (as long not bitter and edible)

            • @makibaow: Literally bought a wombok from Coles today to make kimchi

              It was $7.90 for one :(

    • It's better than most Asian shop ones if im honest. Not quite as good as the ones at KBBQ

  • +1

    That prawn wonton ramen soup is bad. There’s not a lot of noodles and the wonton tastes awful. I refunded it when I tried it a few years ago.

    • +2

      Wow, I've never heard a bad thing about then until now. Maybe you got a bad batch.

      • Maybe I am used to eating authentic Hong Kong style wonton noodles and expected too much.
        I also saw people returning it sometimes I walk past the Customer service booth and never notices people of Chinese appearance buy them.

        • +1

          I've eaten a lot of wanton noodles in my life including in Hong Kong and it's fine. Again maybe you got a bad batch or something.

          • +1

            @ozbs25: I had tried this Wonton noodles and the noodles have no texture. The wontons were nice but the noodles weren't my thing and so it's once bitten twice shy!

          • +1

            @ozbs25: Each to their own I guess. Like instant Phở would never please discerning phở eaters or natives.
            That’s not to say I did not get a bad batch but don’t think I will buy them again.

            • @FrugalNotStingy: I regard myself as a pretty discerning eater and find it quite nice.

            @J B S: i am, I dont mind it but I dont buy it since it takes up too much freezer space.

            my dad who is a fkn chinaman likes it

            Sure the noodles could be a bit better, but its frozen and it could do with more veg. It is what it is

            • @WT: Totally agree that it takes up an entire section of the freeze just to store a couple of servings. But this used to be the bomb, it taste so close to the street side prawn wonton noodle you can get in Asia.

    • +4

      I have an opposite opinion, and it tastes great, bought it many times and it was perfect every time. Maybe you had a wrong batch, which happens sometimes with lots of products…

    • Agree. It is garbage. Tried it years ago and couldn't understand why it was popular

    • +1

      It all comes down to how you reheat it. If you microwave using the directions in the box, the noodles go soggy and are horrible. Reheat on the stove and remove the noodles as soon as they detach and from the ice block. The noodles keep their texture, add a little chilli oil and this represents unbelievable value wheh compared to instant cup noodle choices.

      • I was trying to be diplomatic but yeah there is a chance that people aren't heating it correctly. My wife changed our usual heating method so our toddler could try some and the noodles weren't as nice as they are normally.

    • +1

      The usual price is $8.99

  • The spring onion and kimchi are highly recommended. Wonton is so so.

    • +2

      I wasn’t a fan of the spring onion, wasn’t that good after cooking in a pan - how did you like it?

      • I actually don't think it's terrible; it's not as good as the 義美 YiMei ones that you get from Chinese grocers, or the ones that you make yourself, but for this price, it's great to have in the freezer.

    • Cooked in the pan have oil flowing all out from it. Won't buy it again.

      • +2

        I've bought it a few times and have never had oil coming out of it. It's always been pretty dry.

    I used to be a big fan of jongga kimchi. It was very well balanced, not too mature and cheap. But recently I found that jongga may have tweaked the recipe. Now it is overly salty, not as umami as before and feels slightly more aged than I would like it. This happened to two separate purchases in the last couple of months.

    • If you don't like aged ones, I think it's better to check the best before date and choose. Also, it depends on how it was stored as well
      Btw, aged ones are good for making kimchi fried rice

        or kimchi chigge!

    Anyone notice and I guess it’s been like 6 months maybe now but Costco sales are monthly … which I find annoying as I looked forward to Costco sales when it was fortnightly.. imagine Cole’s and woolies changing their weekly sales to fortnightly 😳

    • +2

      It's does give you more of a chance to catch the sales though. Costco is a day out for us (we live right in the middle of 3 different stores, all are 30+ minutes away) and we can't go that often.

      Speaking of kimchi, we all have kimchi fridge/freezers right?? Lots of room for Costco stuff! 🙃

  • the wonton noodles are great for lunch as they work out roughly $3 each, does anyone know how many sheets of the spring onion pancake are in the package thanks

    • It's only big enough for a snack.

  • +1

    This is my favourite Kim Chi Brand.

    Usually I buy it from Woolies for $13.

    at $7 it's a steal.

  • Bought one of the Kimchi last time I visited. Ate some then threw the rest in the bin. Just wasn't nice.

    • How long ago? The $16 big one from months ago, the last batches were a bit 'bubbly' and crap. I haven't tried this brand new stuff.

      It used to be very good tho

    • That hurts to read that! When you don't like the flavour anymore, you make recipes where you cook it (kimchi stew, etc)

  • Tried the spring onion pancake over the weekend. Strikes me as being just a larger, slightly different flavoured roti. Very similar texture, but a tiny bit more oily, more salty, and only a very, very light smattering of spring onion. I may as well just put some oil, salt and spring onion on a Roti, LOL.

    It wasn't too bad, but probably won't buy again.

    • whats the point of putting that on yourself when roti is like the exact same price

      • The spring onion pancake is 10 pieces for 1.4kg. Roti is 30 pieces for 1.95kg. That's almost 30% more by weight.

        • ok fair enough. Didnt know there was that much difference in weight

    • Hi,

      Just wondering if this Costco Roti is flaky like the spring onion pancake. I may get some Roti there if the texture is very similar to the spring onion pancake.

      Thank you.

      • +1

        I found them to be very similar, but I'd say the roti is lighter and more flaky IMO. The pancake has a slightly more doughy/chewy texture.

        Could be the way I make them though (in a sandwich press).

        • Thank you so much.
          I will get both.

          Apart from the flaky bit, I also enjoy the soft chewy centre of a pancake.
          I cook it in a frying pan. No oil. Once both sides are cooked, I "squeeze" the pancake from the edge toward the centre a few times to "fluff it up". Cook both sides for a few more seconds. Done. The centre will be soft but not doughy. Maybe this is not for everyone, but it's how I like my spring onion pancakes cooked.
