Kicking off spring with Kimchi & Radish

Kimchi: the new hot (and tangy) addition to our menu


Kimchi & Radish, who are they?

Here at Atis we really value those who align with our mission to empower the world one bowl of powerful food at a time, and Kimchi & Radish do just that. So who are they? Disappointed by the lack of authentic and tasty kimchi in the UK, Jihyun Kim, also known as Kimmy Kimchi, was determined to change this. With the clear goal in mind of providing great tasting fresh kimchi to customers, instead of the then bland kimchi sold in stores, Kimmy started Kimchi & Radish. With the mission of creating a high quality, artisan range of kimchi with only fresh and natural produce that is locally sourced it only made sense that we worked together.

As you may, or may not know, kimchi is a korean dish consisting of fermented veggies, usually including napa cabbage or korean radish along with others such as spring onion, garlic and ginger all nicely tied together with gochugaru which is korean chilli flakes. So what makes Kimmy’s kimchi different? Well, with many years of Korean culinary mastery under her belt Kimmy she decided to produce her kimchi by fermenting all the fresh, sustainably sourced ingredients in small batches and hand-packed them in jars to ensure the highest quality. Her traditional methods of kimchi production free of all artificial preservatives have resulted in one of the tastiest ingredients to include in our salads. 

Soooo… why is Kimchi & Radish so good?

First: Taste

All the different ingredients used by Kimmy in kimchi come together to make every bite you take burst with flavour. The tanginess mixed with the kick from the gochugaru makes it something that, unless you grew up eating, can be the introduction to a whole new world of flavours– flavours so good that you’ll want to eat the kimchi straight out of the jar! And it is no different when you get it in your bowl, which is why we recommend you get our chef curated Kimmy Kimchi bowl (but more on that later).

Second: Health Benefits!

Similar to pickled foods, fermented foods, such as kimchi, are an amazing addition to your diet for an improved gut microbiome, or as we like to call it our second brain (no, really the benefits of a healthy gut microbiome are mind blowing). Here are just a few of the benefits:

  • It may help regulate your immune system, making you stronger against those pesty colds.
  • It may help fight inflammation all over your body.
  • As it feeds your microbiome it could improve cognitive function by helping the brain work better.
  • And last but not least, as it aids digestion, it could also mean better energy recovery from foods you eat.

Add being friendly to any diet, be it vegan or vegetarian, with benefits like that it is hard to argue against adding it to your lunch bowl!
