Korean Banchan/Panchan in Bergen county- GO!

I'm currently obsessed with Korean food, particularly restaurants that serve good banchan/panchan (the small dishes of kimchi/steamed veggies, etc, that come with your meal. Got any recommendations???
Thus far, I've tried:
Organic Tofu House- Ridgewood...Good tofu soup, but really lame banchan (good kimchee, however)
So Moon Nan Jip - Palisades Park. Ok banchan, but nothing to write home about (and stingy with the kimchi).
Poong Lim BBQ - Ft. lee. Terrific, plentiful, and great variety of banchan- acorn jelly!!, though atmosphere was wedding-like?
Lighthouse Restaurant: Fairview. Decent, but not great & it seems to have gone downhill since I last visited 3+ years ago.
I'd love to know your recommendations- this gal can't seem to get enough kimchee in her system
I've been to HMart many times & have purchased, as well as some of the smaller Korean banchan places in and around Closter, but I'm looking for the restaurant that features the best & largest variety. For the money I spend on Banchan alone at these places, I could eat at a restaurant (like I said, I'm into variety)...
