Do you like artisanal kimchi? Then you would like Mama O’s.
I’ve been following Mama O’s Kimchi brand for the past year. It’s made by Kheedim Oh, a kimchimonger by day, DJ by night. You can usually catch him at Lucky Strike (Not the bowling alley) in soho on the weekends.
On Saturday, I met up with Kheedim with a couple of other friends and shared a meal at Danji in Hell’s Kitchen. (I’ll share more details in a later post)
He told me that he attended the NYC Food Manufacturers Business Expo earlier in the week. Bloomberg gave a shout out to Mama O’s Kimchi as an example of a local business that is defining what NYC is best known for.
Kheedim produced this short clip where Bloomberg raps about Mama O’s!

Inspired to get a jar? You can find it at Murray’s Cheese, Essex Market, and Marlow and Daughters.
