Best Kimchi in Toronto?

Posted by Tim / March 25, 2006

There's plenty of kimchi in this city. I've bought it in bulk, imported, vacuum sealed and today - but not for the first time - in a jar from Sanko, the Japanese food store at 730 Queen West. Yes, I know kimchi is Korean.

I'd like to stake a claim that this ordinary looking, $4.95 kimchi is the best in the city. It's crisp, not too spicy and just a little bit sweet. And, it's made right here in the Toronto area, by Kimchi Canada Farm in Newmarket.

What's the point of Kimchi that isn't spicy though?

Incidentally, street meat vendors should start having kimchi as a topping.

I concur wholeheartedly. And dan this would be a great topping on a hot dog or burger.

White people will never appreciate true Korean cuisine if they choose to eat Jap-made crap like this.

Jap-made crap like this? Dude, you are an ignorant moron on so many levels. This kimchi is made by a Korean immigrant name Kang Shin-bong, and I have to say it is really good kimchi. I lived in Korea for years, so I know good kimchi from bad. Maybe you should stick your racist head in a big pot of kimchi and drown yourself. Ignorant twat.

Does Sanko ship kimchi across Canada?
