Where to buy Kimchee in Etobicoke?

Davedigger Jan 3, 2013 12:52 PM

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?

    Go to the Mississauga location of PAT Supermarket at 333 Dundas St. E.


    It's not Etobicoke, but its not very far across Dundas from the 427, and much easier than going downtown.

    I was just there yesterday, in fact.

      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.

        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.

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

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

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