Onion, mustard, cress, radish and kohlrabi not only give the dish incredible flavor, they also supply our body with glucosinolates. These secondary plant substances are natural antibiotics and are said to have an anticarcinogenic effect. The bitter substances they contain also promote the digestion of fat.

If you can't get the shiso cress, you can use another bed of garden cress.
