Korean food rooted in tradition and adapted to Michigan's bountiful produce.

Really Great Korean Food and Drink

Miss Kim, a Korean restaurant, opened in 2016 as a proud part of the Zingerman’s Community of Businesses. Chef Ji Hye Kim grew up in Seoul, South Korea and is obsessed with ancient Korean culinary texts and the finer points of fermentation. Despite rumors of its eponymous origin, the name Miss Kim was chosen for its reference to the most recognizable Korean last name and our restaurant’s female chef-owner.

Our food is rooted in Korean tradition and adapted to showcase Michigan’s bountiful produce. We work with local farmers to build a menu that shines seasonally.

We want our restaurant to be a bright, fun and easy place to be for all our guests. Our service aims to be helpful, informative, warm and enthusiastic – everything you’ve come to expect from Zingerman’s.

Regional Food of Korea: A Tale of Two Cities

Monday, April 29th

Travel with us to the central region of Korea for a tale of two ancient cities – Seoul, the capital of South Korea, and Kaesong, the old capital of Koryo Kingdom. While close in geography, they are far apart in modern history after the Korean War. With this dinner, we will explore the foods of Gyeonggi Province by digging into the stories, history, and dishes of these two old capitals.



Camp Bacon Lunch with Mei Zhang

Saturday, June 1st

Meet Mei Zhang, the author of Travels Through Dali: With a Leg of Ham and the founder of Wild China. Mei will open the doors to the wonders of Yunnan cuisine and its use of pork. She will share the history and traditions of the region and unveil the unique stories and recipes of those who call Yunnan home. Chef Ji Hye Kim will make you lunch from Mei’s book to share. Come and have some meat, meet Mei and learn about Yunnan food, all the while having a tasty lunch!

Our lunch menu is a throwback to our early years as a food cart. Our crisp, fresh and seasonal Asian and Asian-American plates will leave you and your taste buds sated but your mind sharp enough to tackle the next big thing!


Our dinner menu is the product of those long hours our chef spends at her desk, poring over ancient Korean cookbooks; at the market, collaborating with local farmers, and in the Miss Kim kitchen, translating and perfecting those ancient Korean recipes to showcase Michigan produce. The menu features small, medium and large plates that are meant for sharing. Do join us for dinner. Bring all your friends so you can taste everything on our menu!

We are a One Fair Wage restaurant. That means that servers are paid fairly and do not rely on tips for their living. Tips are never expected, but always appreciated. You can also give us a thumbs up, or positive feedback on our survey or online.
