You'd be wrong:




Coincidentally, I just ate this yesterday for the first time, and it was super delicious. (I actually meant to order the second item, but got the ramen somehow on accident. 😅)

(It should be obvious, but try using a higher quality noodle than the 10 cent stuff for a much better taste.)

Finally made it out to a Costco with alcohol and picked up some of the Kirkland margarita with tequila. It's tasty, but not mind blowing. For the convenience and the price though, I'll happily drink it all summer. I'm glad I took a leap of faith and bought a few bottles, the first one I opened is going quick.

Costco has slowly Koreanized, when they first opened it was the place to be for all kinds of poo poo you couldn't get locally.

My experience as well. I'm not a Margarita aficionado by any stretch so hey, $8 for something that is tasty and all you have to do is pour over some ice, I like it.

I already make really good steaks but damned if that doesnít make me want to learn more about sous vide.

Sous vide is just one hell of an easy button to making them. Plus you can just leave them in the tank for extra time if you need too, they wonít get extra done. When you are ready, pop them out of the bag, sear on a pan Put on plate and go. You wonít need to rest them. The only downside is that bit of time after removing it from the bag and before searing, the meat is kinda grey.
The real magic is in chicken breasts and pork though, I always had trouble getting a thick pork chop cooked right, and this just worked. Even the left overs were still juicy.

Another great trick is that you can reheat leftover steak and other meats the same way without overcooking.

My local store announced plans to start selling gas in 2007. That's not a typo - 13 years ago!

Based on the seemingly endless court cases brought against it, so many of them citing Vermont's environmental laws and regulations, you'd be hard pressed not to label the primary litigant, Skip Lavallee as 'noted environmentalist" instead of his actual title "local gas chain owner"

Maybe the price competition will trickle down to me, some 20 miles away. Im much more ecstatic that this disingenuous fucker finally lost.

I'm not sure what you're referring to. I'm not sure anything tastes strongly of vinegar in Korean cooking (I mean maybe I just never noticed). Whatever you ate, I recommend giving it another go sometime at a different place.

I am an avid church-goer here in Daejeon, and my wife is a member of a Naver Cafe. Since Corona started there's been a noticeable drop in Western goods. Sometimes they don't even have certain staples. I guess supply lines are iffy.

I've also heard that the Seoul area CostCos have more imported stuff.

The margarita mix that you add tequila to is really good. Plus at my church it's $6.99 for two jugs. Most grocery stores around here charge about that for one.

That liter of KS balsamic will always have a place in my pantry but the difference between the two is night and day. I don't even know where my bottle came from, it just kind of materialized in my pantry one day but I love it so much.

I have no doubt that better balsamic exists, but it does not cost $10 for a liter of it. Compare the KS to similarly priced lovely balsamic and you will again have a night and day difference.

I totally agree. I think what I was trying to say is that balsamic vinegar is not like top shelf wine or coffee, where the average person can't really tell the difference between a mediocre product and top of the line.

For years I assumed that was the case and I was extremely mistaken. In the summer we like to take nice thick pieces of tomato and lots of basil from the garden, put it on top of mozzarella cheese and drizzle a little balsamic on it. It's good with the Costco balsamic, but using the craft stuff takes it to the next level.

Yeah, precisely. I think Manuel the other Cbus goon posted about em in the first place, but they are way better than store-brand has a right to be. Not like, as good as something you made yourself. But my wife and I will do a daily walk to get out of the house and that margarita you pour into a glass is always great to come back to, since you barely have to do anything.
