The latest Post food section features a store-bought kimchi taste test, and H Mart’s version is tops. I agree, H Mart’s kimchi is excellent, and they also have a variety of other pickled goodness — cucumbers, black beans, peppers, anchovies, you name it, they pickle it.

Elsewhere in the H Mart prepared foods section, marinated beef and pork are big winners, and the fresh noodles (lo mein, etc.) are good. I’d stay away from the fried fish cakes, though, which are about the only thing in the entire store I categorically avoid (once bitten…).
