Where to buy Kimchee in Etobicoke?

I'm lazy and don't feel like heading into Koreatown/Downtown to buy some kimchee.

Does anyone know of a store that sells it in the south Etobicoke area?

  1. I was surprised to see kimchee at the Scarborough Costco today, but I haven't tried it, so I can't endorse.

    1. etobicoke costco also sells kimchi, but they are in pretty large tubs (maybe 4L is my guess). i have not tried it.

      1. There are a bunch of Korean restaurants in the Dundas/Bloor St. intersection -- on Dundas (east of Kipling)

        1. Too bad the tubs are so big. I would have given it a go.

          The Korean restaurants are a good idea. They'd probably sell me some if I asked nicely. ;-)

            I think the costco container was more like 2 litres than 4, but I'm not totally sure.

          2. Have you tried Top Foods on Brown's line? It's an Asian grocery store with an astonishing selection of various cultures. I can get European Fanta (sometimes!) and great Italian arborio rice along with all the Asian foods.
