Take a step back to reveal Greenfield’s Organic Bulk Food shop boasting the ‘self-proclaimed’ best kimchi in Toronto. Hmm, we’ll have to see about that…
Straight at the back of the store, keeping cool in the centre fridge, you’ll find a few containers of the tasty looking kimchi. What makes it the ‘self-proclaimed’ best? According to Greenfield’s shop owner Richard, his Aunt has perfected their long family tradition of kimchi making perfection. Her grandmother used to make kimchi for Gangnam’s high society so she has many secrets, but we’ll just share two of the edible ones…
Secret ingredient #2: Sun-dried Moroccan hot pepper powder.
Result: Delicious. Greenfield’s in-house kimchi has a fresher and lighter feel to it, the Moroccan hot pepper gives it a unique citrus overtone which leaves a distinctive bite on the tongue, and there’s a good crunch in every bite. A big gigantic thumb up for this kimchi.
Most important ingredient: Family love. Richard Chang, his mom Moon-Soon, and his Aunt – kimchi maker extraordinaire – Chun-Kyung Park.
