I'm searching for superlative kimchi (any vegetable) to take as a gift to a friend in the boonies of New Hampshire. I've tried the stuff at most of the big Korean markets in Flushing. While they can be good, they haven't been great. My preference is for the powerful stuff, with the sauce a bit thicker than what I've found in these markets. For instance, the stuff they serve at Arirang on Northern is on the right track. But I'm not sure that they'd sell me a big bag of it.
Is there a kimchi specialist in Queens? I recall driving by a shop on Kissena and 59th Ave called Chun Ju Kimchi. Anyone been there?
