I learned there are 4 regional variants in China plus Japan and Korea variants.

I learned my preferred brand (Kong Yen) is Taiwanese and infused with vegetable flavors along the way. I've noticed that it's mellower than the Chinkiang labeled varieties I've tried.

Interesting stuff.

love it. Specially the Chinese aged black vinegar variant. Although I am definitely a Lee Kum kee kinda guy.

as a side note its a surprisingly interesting ingredient for cocktails as well. I've tried it in a couple of places and its been a welcome surprise.

I love it too. I never realized the different types, but now I do. I like to use it as a dipping condiment to fried foods.
