This is probably a long shot, but does anyone know of a place to buy kimchi in the city, if at all possible in the Mission or the Civic Center area? I know there's First Korean Market in the Inner Richmond, and I've shopped for Korean groceries at Kukje in Daly City, but I'm going to be carless and busy today and find myself having a serious kimchi craving. And by craving I mean I'd ideally like a jar of it (not some side plate of it at a restaurant), so that I can eat a heaping pile of pieces of kimchi all by itself, without any silly distractions like rice or soup or, you know, other food getting in the way. Yum.
Actually, while I'm on this question, does anyone know of a place in the Bay Area in general where you can get jars of the kind of kimchi that has a few oysters in it? (I haven't seen it, but I've only shopped so far at Kukje.) Love that stuff. Double yum.
