Kimchi in West LA?

Yes I know that it is very difficult to find good Asian food west of the 405, but I am craving kimchi and do not feel like driving to Koreatown tonight. Does anyone know where I can get some good kimchi either in a restaurant or a supermarket in West LA/Santa Monica. Thank you.

  1. Wharo in the Marina has quite decent Korean BBQ and panchan.

    1. Wharo does the trick if you need a Korean fix. If you like Soon-Tofu, you can go to Tofu-Ya on Sawtelle. Not bad and they always have 2-3 kinds of kimchee with the meal. You can also find a couple of brands at the Nijya Market (next to Beard Papa's) on Sawtelle as well.
