I feel like I may have asked this in the past, but I'm asking again. Does anyone have recommendations for kimchi sources in the East Bay (preferably Oakland, San Leandro or Berkeley). I don't care for the kimchi at Koreana in Oakland, so I'm wondering if there are other places that make their own? Or sell good versions.

I've been buying smaller branded jars at places like Berkeley Bowl, Farmer Joe's, Trader Joe's, etc. and while it's fine, I don't love this kimchi either.

I wonder if Tokyo Fish in Berkeley might have good options, though they are unfortunately somewhat far from my house.

I would also be happy to buy kimchi from a restaurant if any place sold it.

As a reference, some non-East-Bay places that I like are First Korean Market in SF Richmond District, and Kukje Supermarket in Daly City.
