kimchipapi kitchen is the brainchild of joon son aka kimchipapi. after closing the doors of his previous business, at the buzzer in 2015, son decided to transform his old footwear boutique into a restaurant. after years of trials and tribulations, kimchipapi kitchen finally opened its' doors in may of 2018.
son'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, ho jeo son, former owner of one of the best korean restaurants in boston, the late, great wuchon house restaurant in somerville, ma.
thank you for all the support during these trying times and thank you for supporting the kimchipapi brand.
