Maum was one of the first pickup locations for his now wildly popular Japanese-inspired Basque cheesecakes, which will continue to be sold there, as well as handmade soba noodles and tofu from Soba Ichi in Oakland. The diversity of the Singapore and APAC teams make for a collegial and cooperative culture. Located in the Tanjong Pagar area near popular bars and eateries, the office is at the nexus of where ‘East meets West’ with lots of old style traditional eateries and bars mixed in with high-end western-oriented restaurants. Singapore’s pleasant tropical climate and quick, cheap flights to beautiful beach getaways like Bali, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand add to the office’s culture. Though unified by their Asian influences, each of Choi’s restaurants is unique due to its name, the variety of cuisine and type of meal. For Sweet Maple, Head Chef Nick Yoon and Co-Manager Suhkanya Hassan blended together a fusion of Korean, Thai, Japanese and American style foods in hopes of creating a brunch-forward menu that they said they believe their customers will enjoy.

Another classic Korean-Chinese dish here, jjamppong ($11.95), is an aromatic and spicy seafood soup with the same bouncy noodles. Order “zamza myun” ($11.95) to get a half order of both, served in a handy partitioned bowl. A pop-up that appears mostly at breweries around Oakland, Sammy’s purports to be the Bay Area’s first pop-up shop to specialize in hotteok, a popular Korean Chinese street food.
There are places that are all about barbecue and showstopper flaming cheese dishes, and places where homestyle options like chicken-and-ginseng soup and black bean noodles rule the roost. While California-Korean cuisine is still developing, there are a few exciting spots on this list that put major emphasis on local sourcing — one restaurant group even has its own farm in California. When Maum reboots in early July, the chefs will instead produce Korean kitchen staples out of its kitchen, with an emphasis on seasonal pickles, various housemade kimchis, and other fermented items. They’ll also offer a farm box featuring produce from a small family farm in the Los Altos hills that the restaurant sources from exclusively.
Everything will be sold on a pre-order basis, with customers ordering items to pick up via Tock, and no one will be allowed to come inside to shop. Founded by the team behind San Jose’s Danbi, Omogari is another excellent addition to the South spanish side dish Bay city’s nascent Korean food scene. The interior is modest, with muted decor, though the food adds plenty of character to the experience. If you’ve got a taste for over-the-top spectacles — and broiled cheese — Omogari’s got you covered.
Enormous mandu dumplings, wiggly acorn jelly salads and lettuce wraps cradling tender grilled pork belly have made Jang Su Jang a constant favorite of Korean cuisine lovers here. Recommend it to your friends who are skeptical that nothing in the Bay Area can match Los Angeles’ Korean food offerings. Jang Su Jang’s broad menu includes Korean barbecue classics, gigantic dumplings ($21) and a crustacean-heavy seafood soup ($23) with toothy hand-cut noodles.
“Thinking about our dining format and the landscape of fine dining — sitting there for long, extended amounts of time next to strangers — it’s just uncomfortable for people, and they won’t have a good experience,” Meichi Kim tells Eater SF. When diners arrive, they’ll stand for a 30-minute reception, during which the kitchen will serve canapés such as a corn tartlet — a riff on a low-brow Korean dish of corn and melted cheese — and “soondae,” Korean street-food blood sausage. The Maum kitchen is fueled by a small, private farm in Los Altos Hills that exclusively supplies the restaurant. Kim wanted to have a farm to ensure access to quality Korean produce, which is difficult to come by, even in the Bay Area. “The aim is to create a community gathering space where people will connect with friends, family and food,” Robert Hindman, managing director of State Street developer Los Altos Community Investment, stated in an email.
Tandem is a language exchange app where people teach each other their native language. Each month more than 500,000 people visit Tandem with 29 of them coming from Palo Alto. My main goal is to be able to comfortably understand native Spanish speakers in conversation. “One of the reasons I’ve struggled to stay engaged in practicing languages is a lack of being able to talk to native speakers, so this app is a lifesaver.”
