Tangy-spicy kimchi brightens the taste of a rich, toasty grilled cheese sandwich. We use a combination of two cheeses for the best flavor and texture. Fresh mozzarella is creamy, slightly firm when melted, and mild enough to allow the kimchi to shine; Monterey Jack is ultra creamy when melted and slightly tangy, which echoes the taste of the kimchi. The kimchi retains some crunch in the sandwich, creating a great textural contrast to the soft cheese.
