Um.Ma. Which means “mom” in Korean is to pay homage not to just Korean moms, but to all moms since we all think our mothers have the best home cooking.
As for the food, chef Chris along with chef de cuisine Edwin Bayone will be firing up classic dishes like bubbling bowls of pork belly soon tofu and milky white bowls of ox bone soup with tender slices of brisket. From the wood fired grill, the chefs will be grilling prime cuts of 48hr marinated kalbi short ribs and chared gochujang glazed pork belly accompanied with raw sliced apples and Korean miso spread. We also are well aware with any great Korean restaurant, there must be great banchans (Korean side dishes). The Um.Ma. Culinary team is taking great pride in making some of the best and freshest banchans from our daily house made kimchi to our sweet pickled hen of the woods mushrooms.
Um.Ma. Also features a luscious back patio with a bar, picnic tables and 80 year old trees where diners will be able to have a drink and lounge to 90’s hip hop and dine al fresco.
The Um.Ma. Team’s goal is to further promote Korean food and its culture while giving diners the nostalgic feeling of being back at mom’s house enjoy a hot home cooked meal. Source: Um.Ma Website
This Inner Sunset neighborhood favorite brings “LA-style” Korean food to San Francisco. Mostly, that means a hip vibe and a contemporary approach to the greatest-hits menu, which for the most part sticks to the usual crowdpleasers: a big seafood pancake, a kimchi fried rice, and a sticky-sweet take on Korean fried chicken. The whole menu is available for takeout, and, it’s also selling take-home Korean barbecue kits — something to tide customers over until outdoor grill-it-yourself Korean tabletop barbecue starts up again on Um.ma’s string light–bedecked patio.
