This week on The Food Seen Michael speaks to King Phojanakong of Kuma Inn and Umi Nom. King came to HRN studios with his wife, his parents, and (via telephone) his brother. With multiple generations and food cultures in one place, King explained about how growing up eating a mix of Thai and Filipino foods affected him growing up, and how it came to inform his cooking. The Phojanakong clan compare and contrast Thai and Filipino foods and eating traditions, and venture to name their favorite meals at Kuma Inn. Don't miss this intimate, multi-generational look at one of NYC's favorite ethnic-food masters. This episode was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.
