Zion Market Kimchi San Diego

Just wanted to write that I think that their prepared baechu kimchi (napa cabbage) is wonderful. Its lightly pungent - not aggressively spicy nor salty for that matter and I feel good after eating it. I am trying to get more probiotics into my diet so I stopped here for that and a bunch of natto and was really surprised by it. Persian cucumbers are a great deal always here too.

Where do you get your prepared kimchee? What else do you like from their wall de Panchan?

    I'm curious to try making my own kimchi after reading this article by Jane Black of the WaPo yesterday http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/...

    Sounds like she's using the recipe from the Momofuku cookbook

      which kimchi brand did you get? I'm always on the lookout for good kimchi and avoid trying jars/plastic take out boxes b/c I hate bad kimchi.

        it was presumably the one they make there for 2.99 in a plastic pop container in the Panchan wall.

        Some of their panchan is good, some is best avoided. There is beef in soy sauce w/ jalapenos and garlic - that one is best avoided IMO. IIRC the calamari is good, but it's been years since I've bought any.
