Where can one find Kimchee in the western suburbs at either a retaurant or ethnic grocery. I'm aware of Dong Yang but it is too far,

  1. I don't think of Lund's as "ethnic," but at their Uptown store they usually carry kimchee. (If I remember correctly, it's in the produce aisle.) I believe I've also seen multiple brands of kimchee at the Wedge, so I'd check at your nearest co-op as well.

    I'm not aware of any Korean restaurants that would be closer to the western suburbs than Dong Yang in Columbia Heights or Kings in Fridley.

    1. re: bob s

      i don't know how far west you are.. but can confirm the wedge has the same kimchee as the korean grocery down in bloomington (look for the one made in minneapolis in a plain looking jar labelled "yon's foods"). fresh & natural foods also has kimchee..

    2. Most Cub Foods also have it in the produce area

      1. I would suggest going to United Noodle in Minneapolis or Kim's Oriental Market in St. Paul. I've been jaded by my mother's kimchi in Korea and nothing tastes nearly as good. I've tried the stuff from the chain grocery stores and I have to give them a big thumbs down.

        1. The Yon's foods that Cub sells is very good kimchee, I agree.
