Best Kimchi in PJ

Written by Updated ago

When Americans say cheese, Koreans say kimchi! This reddish hued dish is widely acclaimed as one of the healthiest food in the world and it’s commonly found in most Korean and Japanese restaurants out there. For the uninitiated, kimchi is a dish made predominantly with Chinese cabbage, mixed with brine, garlic, vinegar, chilli peppers, scallions and ground pepper then stored in jars at room temperature. It may sound like a cinch to prepare but the precise combination of ingredients and storing process is crucial for a perfect kimchi. Apart from punctuating flavours as a side, just like any famous and flavourful dish, it has graduated into other dishes as well – from soups to pancakes and lately burgers and fried rice too. These renowned joints are known to cause kimchi obsession, swing by to join the bandwagon.

The interior is bright, comforting and clean while the menu features 27 types of contemporary Korean dishes. Apart from the regular kimchi side which is refillable, they also deliver kimchi in other variations like kimchi fried rice, kimchi soup and something you don’t see elsewhere – cheese kimchi jeon.
