Best source for kimchi in Manhattan?
Among restaurants the standout in Manhattan is Gam Mee Ok. I'm told that most Korean restaurants in the city outsource their kimchi, but that Gam Mee Ok makes its own. I can believe this. It's noticeably fresher and livelier in flavor.
They don't sell it, but if you manage to have a bunch left over on your table, they'll pack it up to go.
