Any brands you would recommend to try or avoid? Never had kimchi and was planning on picking some up next time I go.

Um, I would say do not get vegan kimchi. It is not even close to being as good. It's also an acquired taste. If you like sauerkraut, you probably will like kimchi. Otherwise it helps to heat it up by searing it in a stirfry or something like that. Radish kimchi can be really good, but napa cabbage is where it's at.

Along that line, there's a kimchi shortage in South Korea currently, and I think that's impacting the quality of what gets exported.
