Since my last post on Kimchi is a hit, it’s time to list another Korean side dish called Danmuji. Danmuji is a yellow pickled radish that you can always found in Kimbap. When you bite, you can taste that crispy, sweet and sour at one time. It’s a fermented vegetable where they put in vinegar and few spices to achieve that taste.
I like to match this with ramyeon too. But, usually, if you watch Korean Drama, you will see some of the characters eat the half-circle yellow radish with jjajangmyeon. I can understand why they compliment each other.
So, let’s start listing 7 Halal Korean snacks that are homemade and where you can get them online on Shopee Malaysia!

1. Dalbitjib Korean Yellow Pickled Raddish
There are two types of Danmuji from Dalbitjib, which is the strips and sliced types. Both types got three options that you can choose from either 300g, 500g and 1000g.
Based on the reviews that I read, most of the reviews always mention the packaging problem. But don’t worry, they pack it diligently along with an ice pack which in the hope, you will still receive the package in good condition and can enjoy eating them!
Price: 300g at RM14.90 until 1000g at RM37.90 Postage fee: RM0.00 - RM4.60 To purchase the strips danmuji, click here.For sliced danmuji, click here.
2. MariMogo Dazzling Danmuji
MariMogo danmuji sold around 3.1k packs that consist of 150g, 450g and 1000g. It’s made from fresh vegetables and premium ingredients, which are produced daily.
Like an above store, their danmuji is vacuum packed, so some buyers experience leaking and bursting. Since it’s a fermented food and when it was moving around transition, this thing may happen. I hope that you won’t experience the problem and get frustrated.
Price: 150g at RM12 until 1000g at RM80 Postage fee: RM0.00 - RM4.60 To purchase MariMogo danmuji, click here.
3. Bansang Halal Danmuji
Bansang Halal Danmuji sold around 79 bottles of danmuji with 29 ratings. They only sell one type of danmuji at 400g, but it’s interesting because they also sell in sets consisting of their trial pack of danmuji, kimchi, Myulchi Bokkeum and chilli flakes.
So far, based on the review, their customers are satisfied with their fast shipping and the taste as well. I like how they sell it a bottle, and I can imagine they use quite a lot of bubble wrap to prevent it from breaking.

The customers were mostly happy with the fast shipping and the packaging because they put the danmuji inside a bottle. So, double the protection. But, there is a complaint about the smell, though, but some said it tasted fine despite that.
