They offer a full Korean BBQ meal or if you just want to try the Korean Burrito. They’ve had much success with catering to people who love Korean food as well as introducing it to first timers as well.

The food is fresh!! They don't buy anything pre shredded or frozen (unless it needs to be for quality purposes) and literally make EVERYTHING in house. The sauces are the chef’s own recipes. Their meat is delivered whole and is broken down by the chef every day. Everything is cooked to order and is authentic.

Kimchi Mama is an entirely family run business. The father (pyung ho) is the chef, mother (SeungAe) is sous chef, 2 daughters and 1 son have their respective roles in this newly arrived food enterprise. Pyung ho has been a chef for 20 years and went to culinary school in Seoul Korea. SeungAe has owned various businesses and restaurants in NJ over the past 30 years. They live locally in Palisades Park.

The eldest daughter, Leslie, made a major move from Florida to help open Kimchi Mama with her parents. She can be found at the front of the house and is catering manager, but also lends her expertise in marketing and social media.

“We chose Fair Lawn because we were looking for a great kitchen to do catering in and when we found this space that could do takeout and delivery as well it just seemed meant to be. And so we do both. We also love that we can introduce Korean food to a not predominately Korean area. They keep coming back!” said Leslie.
