Hours: Lunch & Dinner
When it comes to hospitality, few restaurateurs can make you feel more welcome and at home than Mama Kim Brown. Order the bibimbap, and she will come to your table and demonstrate the proper technique for stirring the fried egg into the rice and vegetables. She won’t stop until she’s satisfied that you understand what to do. If kids are at the table, she will take the time to make sure they are eating well, and if you’ve got a baby with you, well, just hand it over. She’ll take it while you enjoy your dinner. And you will enjoy your dinner. The bright lights won’t dim your enthusiasm for the food here. The sushi is good, and the Japanese choices are numerous, but we prefer the Korean specialties of the house, which come with the requisite spread of Korean side dishes. We love the pickled daikon, the crunchy black beans, and the spicy kimchi. And we love Mama Kim too. She makes dining out on King Street a hell of a lot of fun since she insists on rocking out with her wok out. —Stephanie Barna Dish (Winter 2015)
Korean grill with sushi, Korean beef bul-go-gee and bee-bim-pop. And don't forget Mama Kim Brown. She's the reason you'll come back again and again.
