CookingFilter: I've been making a bunch of Asian fusion dishes lately and I don't think I've ever been satisfied with a component crucial to my understanding of food: the cheese!

The cheese I've used so far (provolone for the bulgolgi shooter's sandwich, Swiss in the banchan/routuan poutine) conflicted with the sweeter, tangier tastes of the Korean (though it was okay with the Chinese meatballs). From the Western perspective, the cheese helps enhance the fatness and the heartiness of the meat but here it smothers the the lighter flavors. What kind of cheese bolsters the fragrancy of that sweet, peppery, garlic-based flavor popular in many Asian dishes?
