New Korean Pop-up “Soul & Busan” is Coming to Comfort & Floyd This Weekend!
A new authentic Korean pop-up Soul & Busan is coming to Comfort & Floyd (1301 S 11th St.) this weekend. Owner Jenn Kim is taking her culinary talents to E. Passyunk where she’ll be serving up popular and classic Korean dishes.
An architect by day, Jenn is a natural builder of eye catching things. Every weekend she puts away her T-Square and picks up her spatula to create her masterpieces. Jenn Kim is not a trained chef picked up her cooking talents form her mother, “The extent of my restaurant background is working/helping my mom at her food businesses during summers when I was in high school. I found that during the last year, I was turning to the foods I grew up eating for comfort. My mother showed her love for us through cooking and I wanted to extend that,” Kim explained.
Kim’s first Soul & Busan pop-up was actually at Izzy’s 33 (1703 S 9th St.) and since then things took-off. Although, there’s already hype surrounding this weekend her next pop-up is still in the works but Kim is currently speaking with several restaurants and cafes in the city. The menu will change for future pop-ups but Soul & Busan will continue to offer their most popular dishes including the Miggy’s chicken sandwich.
