Ponce City Market kimchi stall Simply Seoul closed its doors on January 8 but alluded to kimchi production continuing elsewhere through another local business. Atlanta Magazine reported Thursday that Tim Song, owner of East Atlanta’s Gaja Korean Bar, has acquired Simply Seoul.
Song, who is of Korean descent, later confirmed the acquisition news via the restaurant’s Instagram page.
While the recipes may vary slightly from those of previous owner Hannah Chung, Song plans to keep the name Simply Seoul and continue the small-batch, all-natural kimchi production.
Simply Seoul kimchi can be found at Whole Foods, Buford Highway Farmers Market, Candler Park Market, Grant Park Market, Little’s Food Store, Rainbow Natural Foods, Wahoo Wine & Provisions, and the newly opened Decatur Market.
