Meet Esther! Esther and her parents run Food Mood: Korean Kitchen at 178 Rideau St. Originally from Vancouver, Esther and her parents moved to Ottawa after Esther started school at the University of Ottawa – L’Université d’Ottawa.
When Esther first moved to Ottawa by herself, she noticed a lack of Korean food in the capital and yearned for home-cooked meals. Now, her and her family are part of a growing East Asian wave of restaurants in the area.
With 15 years of culinary experience from both Korea and Canada, Esther’s parents are taking a twist on Korean food, making it fast and accessible. They make creative takes on originals and prepare homemade sauces from scratch.
We recommend trying a classic bibimbap or the unique 9-K-Bite inspired by Korean BBQ lettuce wraps! And if you’re new to Korean food, stop by and ask for a recommendation!
