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.



We’re looking for creative kids to give color and a story to our cool Miss Kim characters! Print these coloring sheets. Add some colors and imagination. Bring them in to Miss Kim and ….
All April long!

Sensational Spices Dinner

Sensational Spices – A Dinner with Épices de Cru

Imagine intrepid trekkers from Épices de Cru, traversing the Silk Road, from Nara, the 7th century capital of Japan, via Umruqi, a major Chinese trade hub in the Tang dynasty to Balkh, a 2500-year-old city in northern Afghanistan.

Now imagine them collecting spices along the way and delivering them to Ji Hye – a diligent student of food history and an exemplary chef.

Then imagine Ji Hye transforming those treasures into a feast, just for you.

With some allowance for dramatic hyperbole, that’s pretty much what’s going to happen on April 30, 2018. With very special guests, Spice Trekkers, Marika and Steve.

If you’re wondering what the menu’s going to look like, here are just some of the dishes Ji Hye is considering :

  • Steamed bun with Chinese five spice braised pork belly, cilantro, and peanuts
  • Fried vegetables and/or chicken pieces in light tempura batter, dusted with Korean chili flakes and Sichuan peppercorn
  • Blanched sugar snap peas with Zingerman’s black pepper and wasabi oil
  • Soft poached egg and microgreen salad with salted shrimp dressing, seasoned nori seaweed, and shichimi togarashi
  • Koryo carrot salad with cumin, coriander, and sesame seeds
  • Fresh cilantro kimchi with Korean chili flakes
Tteokbokki, spicy rice baton



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!

REMEMBER : We take good care of our staff so there’s no need for you to tip.
