Have you ever used ginger as a substitute for galanagal? How did it end up tasting?

although ginger and galangal look similar they have very very little similarities in terms of taste.

galangal tastes more woodsy and citrus-like, whereas ginger has a spicier taste.

if you can't find fresh galangal, look in the freezer section of most Asian stores.
