Kimchi for beginners?

Bostontrav | May 4, 2010 12:59 PM

Hi Hounds,

OK, I'll out myself: I've never had kimchi! Now I'm excited to take the plunge, but need some help:

1) Is there a good brand/kind to buy to get me started? The only problem is that I can't tolerate really spicy food, so is there a good "starter" kimchi that is not going to set my tongue on fire? I've heard that kimchi comes in all levels of hot, so please steer me to a mild one!

2) Any hints for where to find this in Boston/JP/Rozzie area?

Thanks in advance!
