For many years, Sook Kim and her son, Hyun (Brown '01), have resided in Rhode Island and wanted to start a Korean restaurant. They always thought a city like Providence that prided itself in fine cuisine deserved authentic gourmet Korean food.
During their recent trip to the West Coast, the mom and her son found a perfect platform to showcase the family recipes: mobile catering trucks. These modern trucks were versatile and could provide the broad Rhode Island community with access to great Korean food. Hence the idea for "Mama Kim's" was born.
Each day, we receive fresh produce and meats from Rhode Island suppliers. Painstakingly marinated with delicious fruits, spices and sauces from Korea, our dishes boast ultimate taste of freshness and full authentic flavor. Gourmet Korean food never tasted this good.
Everything about Mama Kim's is local. Awesome young chefs from Johnson & Wales cook our food the way it's supposed to be cooked. Our logo and truck design were made by RISD students. We have formed a strong partnership with local suppliers so that we can deliver amazingly fresh food at such affordable prices. It's mom's great cooking, meet Rhode Island pride!
