Is it cheaper to buy Kimchi or make it yourself?
What's the best place to buy a good amount of tasty kimchi at an affordable price?
Or else has anyone ever made their own kimchi? Is it difficult to do? I can't get enough of this stuff!

I've watched my mom make kimchi and the smell isn't so bad. I think the fermenting is what makes it really stink.
Few weeks? That's insane! Every so often my mom would send me a care package with a small jar of kimchi. That would last me months.

haha yeah there are 6 people in my house so we go through it pretty fast. I find kimchi goes sour within a couple months though.

I'm not a huge fan of Kimchi, but I prefer it sour.
Now I cannot vouche if this works or not at the Owl, but generally the side dishes are free at Korean restaurants and asking for more is free too.

That's great advice, I'll give it a try next time I'm there.slowtyper yeah I think a lot of people don't know you can simply ask for more. All that I've been to, with the exception of one (oh goel bo goel), has been very good at giving more refills on the side dishes. There are some really nice ones that refill it without asking, which was very appreciative.

While I'm don't really like kimchi that much, I like most other korean food. This website is a great find! I just bought a container of the korean chili paste and will start experimenting witih some of the dishes. I think I can substitute chinese chilli flakes and chinese soybean paste for the korean versions....well at least I"ll try it first.
