Get to know me better

I captivated diners with spectacular and scrumptious dishes infused with vibrant creativity and joy

For over 18 years, I have captivated diners with spectacular and scrumptious dishes infused with vibrant creativity and a joyful spirit of adventure.

I have been around the kitchen since I was just a child. I graduated Le Cordon Bleu in 2002, and since then, I have played with all sorts of cuisines: from classic comfort American to far-east Asian cuisines. I have worked in a couple of incredible restaurants in Southern California such as Upstairs 2, JiRaffe, Joe’s Restaurant, L’Orangerie, Mamash, and Ortolan.

I take pride in surpassing client expectations with unmatched culinary artistry that enhances banquets, weddings, themed parties, and other events with exquisitely prepared high-end cuisine and inspired creativity.

My team and I have an extensive career, a casual open-minded personality, and a couple of great secrets of LA to share! The perfect recipe for a memorable experience around the table!

Chef Kim created an amazing Asian fusion menu that we were the first to experience. Everything was so fresh and the flavors so vibrant, this meal became the centerpiece of our trip. It started out as an alternative to a fine dining experience during Covid, but now I'm thinking this might actually be the best way all the time! Thanks again Chef, be seeing you again I'm sure.

Chef Kim was amazing. He made us all feel safe and was able to tweak our menu to fit our dietary restrictions! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone! It was such a special birthday surprise!
