Hello fellow SE1ers..

I wondered if anyone knew of anywhere in SE1 that sells kimchi.. I need to get hold of some tomorrow.

I know there is the Chinese supermarket up near Asda but there opening hours seem erratic and I don't want to make a trip up there really if they're not open (or don't have any).

If I absolutely have to I'll go into Chinatown but does anyone else have any ideas?

Thanks v much...

I must go round with my eyes shut as I've never noticed that place before.

Thanks for that - will definitely give them a try tomorrow.

There is also an oriental food shop in the shopping centre on the first floor.

There is going to be a stall selling Kimchi at Lower Marsh Saturday, I can't remember if she said this weekend or next... I will see if I can find out for certain...

Edited to update - Ok I am told...
"We're hoping 3rd of May, but still finalising details. The stall are called Pickles&Brine; their Twitter is @harringaybrine"

Life's too short live it!!!
