what kind of food do you serve at Sooki & Mimi?

the short answer: we serve delicious food.

the longer answer: we serve food that speaks to chef ann kim’s personal journey as a South Korean immigrant woman raised in a suburb of Minnesota, educated in NYC, fueled by a hunger for tortillas and profound respect for masa. while she often feels like she’s in a constant identity crisis, her food reveals the gift of a life lived at the intersection of cultures, sustained by curiosity and appreciation.
