kimchi by the truckload

basil | Jan 6, 200207:08 PM

can anyone point me to a store where i can get kimchi cheaper than uwajimaya? the offerings in viet-wah, hoho and the like are smaller (and therefore more expensive) than the 1/2 gallon "lee's" jar in uwajimaya. the latter is not bad at $8.49, but i am going thru 3 or 4 jars a week. i wonder whether paldo or boohan or some such place has a 5-gallon tub on offer?

i don't have a car, so i'd rather not take the bus way out to those suburbs just to investigate (i called, but the language barrier was a problem). of course i don't mind making the trip once if i actually know where to head, tho.

alternately, i'd be glad to get it online, but i can barely find ANY kimchi, let alone cheap/bulk/good ones! doesn't even list ONE, for example.

btw, pls. don't tell me to make my own...i've tried, with miserable results. i will keep on trying, but in the meantime, i need the cheapest source for my "fix".
