Dongchimi - November 2021

Each month, The Korean Pantry will feature a new Kimchi, inspired by the seasons and our Chef’s passion for experimenting with textures and flavours.


“The Kimchi Collection continues its tour of the best seasonal Kimchi. This time, I take you to the cold winter months and bring you a traditional winter kimchi : Dongchimi.”

Made in winter when the Korean radishes are at their best, crunchy and sweet, Dongchimi is a Water Kimchi akin to a cold soup. In Korea, you eat hot and spicy dishes  when the temperatures are high, cold dishes when the temperatures drop.

Dongchimi tastes sweet, salty and tangy. The fresh chillies give some warmth, while the broth is intensely cooling, often served almost frozen.  It makes the best base for naemgmyeon too (cold noodles).

You can have this kimchi served with its broth as a starter or as a side for very spicy dishes. Or to calm heartburn and indigestion. True healing properties!

If you love the White Kimchi, you will fall head over heals for Dongchimi.


As with our other versions, naturally made without any preservatives or additives, The Korean Pantry DONGCHIMI is unpasteurised and will develop loads of probiotics and prebiotics to support your gut health.
