aT Center LA and Bacari West 3rd teamed up together to introduce Los Angeles to a menu of mouth-watering dishes from the Republic of Korea. Celebrated Chef Lior Hillel of Bacari Restaurants curated a Korean-centered menu that showcases key ingredients such as Kimchi, Garlic, Red Ginseng, Omiberry, Yuja, and other traditional flavors.
These menus were popular not only for their taste but also for their health benefits. There is growing evidence that fermented foods such as kimchi may improve intestinal health and, as a result, it supports the immune system and anti-inflammatory responses. Kimchi can also improve levels of good bacteria in the gut and may help improve symptoms such as constipation and diarrhea.
