Mama's Drive-By Kitchen
Where we've featured it
Devastated by the overwhelming number of restaurant closures due to the pandemic, Jared Jue and Alice Han teamed up with fellow marketing experts and creatives Jonathon Chu, Andy Lam, and Geng Wang to put their love for LA immigrant food culture into action. And thus, Mama’s Drive-By Kitchen was born. Equal parts charity initiative, restaurant pop-up, and revolutionary delivery platform, this mega-hybrid distributes dish pairings from two separate mom-and-pop restaurants to convenient pick-up points in West LA, Koreatown, and the San Gabriel Valley. Past collaborations have included Boyle Heights shop Las Flautas + Colombian Korean-owned Escala, the legendary Brodard Restaurant paired with Ktown institution, Hwang Hae Do, plus a Gamboge + Medan Kitchen crossover that might just have been LA Senior Editor, Arden Shore’s favorite meal of the year. Presales tend to sell out quickly, so make sure to keep an eye on Mama’s Drive By Kitchen’s Instagram for all the latest updates.
