In Khmer, Ming means "Auntie." We craft our dishes from scratch and bring them to you so that every meal feels like it's cooked by family. Ming's originates from our obsession with exploring Southeast Asian cuisine and bringing the wonderful influence of Asian street food culture to Lil Rhody. With Ming's, you'll enjoy the comforting and flavor-packed dishes of street stalls in Phnom Penh, Saigon, and Bangkok right here at home. Authentic recipes created with a barbecue flare are perfect for those on-the-go or with time to savor.
Josh and Korn are a couple who's love of cooking Asian cuisine has driven them mad enough to drop the 9 to 5 and start a mobile food business. Korn's parents escaped Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge of the 1970's and settled in Rhode Island, where they raised three children on the food of their home country. These Cambodian favorites, with the influence of nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand and China have always been close to her heart.
Josh learned to cook as a teenager and took a special interest in barbecue. He learned to cook with smoke and loved to grill up feasts for family, friends, and parties. Lucky for him, he found Korn and her infectious knowledge and pride in Southeast Asian cuisine. It is this shared passion that brings you Ming's!
