We’ve had lots of inquiries about where we’ve gone. Don’t worry, we’re still here- just on a bit of a hiatus. We moved our home from Englewood, NJ to Ridgefield, NJ. More details to come. In the meantime, we want to thank you for your patience as we take the time to get started again.

Additional (Manhattan) access to Arirang Kimchi

10/26/2012

Arirang Kimchi takes pride in making a delicious food product that people continue to purchase and eat with their meals. This means that it’s a type of friendship or bond, if you will, between kimchi and kimchi consumer. The fact that someone continues to give us this opportunity to be a part of their lives is what makes us proud and grateful. So far, our ‘friends’ have not been disappointed and we plan to keep it that way.

With that said, our Manhattan friends, too, can now enjoy Arirang Kimchi on a regular basis! Fortunately, Union Market‘s new location on Houston Street and Avenue A opens up this month! Make sure to stop by and check out the plethora of cheese, fresh breads, produce, fish, meat and gourmet goodies they have to offer. Then, of course, buy a jar of Arirang Kimchi to eat alongside those gourmet goodies!

Additionally, Bushwick-ites! You should know that Bushwick Food Coop now carries our product as well. Make sure to become a member to take advantage of the discounted prices!

Finally, if anyone would like for Arirang Kimchi to be in their local neighborhood market, please either place a request with the store, or contact us at info@arirangkimchee.com and let us know where. We will work hard to get our tangy and yummy kimchi into that store.

How do you eat your kimchi? (And chance to win free Arirang!)

06/30/2012

Nowadays, kimchi isn’t solely found in the kitchen of Korean grandmothers. Enthusiasts of the pickled product live all around the world, and they are consuming it in all sorts of creative, untraditional ways. And here at Arirang Kimchi, we love promoting this tasty and versatile product. In fact, one of our favorite things about participating in food markets and cooking demos around the city is meeting Arirang customers and learning about their KCH (Kimchi Consumption Habits). You guys are eating it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as a central component of the meal or as a snack straight out of the jar. Whether it’s shredding scallion kimchi into morning omelettes, dicing up cucumber kimchi for a spicy summer salad, or pureeing napa cabbage kimchi for a gazpacho (true story!), you guys inspire us with your culinary endeavors!

So in the spirit of kimchi innovation, we want to know: How do you eat your kimchi? Send us a photo of your kimchi creation and a brief description of your dish. The brilliant chef behind our favorite dish will win a FREE Arirang six-jar combo pack of napa cabbage, baby radish, garlic chive, broccoli rabe, cucumber, and scallion. So go forth daring kimchi-lovers and show us what you (and your dish) are made of!

Email photos with brief description to info@arirangkimchee.com or tweet them @arirangkimchee. Photos may be used in future print and online materials. Contest ends July 31st.

Kimchi fried rice with bacon, scallions, and nori flakes.

Arirang Kimchi at New Amsterdam Market

06/25/2012

One of our favorite food markets in the city is the New Amsterdam Market, and we are so happy to be part of it this year! Taking place at the old Fulton Fish Market every Sunday, the market features tons of awesome local food-makers, who source their ingredients regionally. You’ll find everything from the basics of breads, veggies, meats, and cheeses to more offbeat things like pies, pickles and pasta sauces. There is also a tasty selection of gourmet eats and drinks around, so you can satisfy your cravings while you shop.

Arirang will be there on select days with an assortment of our favorite products, made especially with vegetables from local farms. Two Sundays ago, we brought two of our seasonal kimchis – the cucumber and the red napa cabbage – as well as our traditional mahk kimchi. We had such a great time chatting with everyone, and learning how you guys eat your kimchi. Apparently kimchi with your eggs is a very popular pairing!

So come by New Amsterdam soon – say hi, try our samples, and take home a jar or two! Plus, we’ll be handing out recipe cards with some handy ideas for those of you looking for some inspiration.

P.S. We’re taking suggestions for what to bring next time – are there any fans of baby radish, broccoli rabe, scallion, garlic chives, or vegan napa cabbage out there? Email us at info@arirangkimchee.com and let us know!

New Amsterdam Market – every Sunday between 11am and 4pm, Downtown Manhattan on South Street and Beekman Street.

Arirang Kimchi will be there on:

7/1
7/22
9/16
9/23
11/11
11/25
12/9
