after running one of the 1st sneaker konsignment shops in boston (at the buzzer) from 2008 - 2015, kimchipapi klosed the doors for good and decided to transform his sneaker shop into a restaurant. after an initial failed attempt in 2015, kimchipapi had to regroup, defeat self-doubt, and overkome mental obstacles. he was able to finally present the masses with kimchipapi kitchen in may of 2018.
kimchipapi's family has been in the restaurant business for over 20 years. his desire to enter the restaurant business was influenced heavily by his mother, former owner of one of the best korean restaurants in massachusetts, the late, great wuchon house restaurant in somerville, ma.
"i would not be here without your love and support. thank you to the kimchipapi kommunity and to all my kings and kweens. peace and blessings."
