Ajumama is a food truck that is commonly found on Summit StreetÂ offering its delicious food wares to patrons of Seventh Son Brewing Co. or onÂ occasion, the Columbus Commons. This food truck is one of the more popularÂ vendors of its kind located here in good old CBUS, and it does NOTÂ disappoint.
What is an Ajumama, you ask? Well, itâ€™s basically a mother who cooks foodÂ with love. Ajumama is the Korean word for Ma’am, basically what youÂ would call a married or older woman not related to you. The ajummasÂ are famous for their tenacity, sharp elbows, warmÂ hearts, fiery tempers and their loyalties — as well as their amazing food.Â Walk up to a street cart or into one of the red tented pojangmachasÂ that pop up on the streets of South Korea after the sun goes down, andÂ you will most likely find a smiling ajumama doing everything fromÂ serving, cleaning and cooking to giving advice.
I have to say that the food from this food truck is excellent, and authenticÂ to the spirit of the Korean Ajumama . I tried a Kimchi HotÂ Dog for $6, and let me tell you it is the best Kimchi I have hadÂ in a long time. It featured ÂĽ an all-natural pork and beef dog from TheÂ Good Frank, topped off with a house made cucumber kimchi,Â spicy K-mayo and green onions. For a $6 price, how canÂ you go wrong?
The service was fast and on point. The truckâ€™s look is a turquoise color with cool patterning and itâ€™s kept in tip top shape. The Chef, Laura Lee, was aÂ pure delight to converse with. It is clear that she has a great passion for food to go with her incredible education and experience.
Be sure to also try The Dak and the Temple Bowl. Both of which areÂ excellent. I rate this particular food truck with five stars and mayÂ God have mercy on our appetites!
