I’ve been lucky enough to get to know chef Bill Kim over the last number of years. We never worked together but as Trotter Alums we have many friends in common. Bill’s food is Asian in flavor but always very familiar with his unique playful style that has American influences.

Chef Kim was one of the first to leave the fine dining world he earned his stripes in to more casual dining. While the atmosphere is laid back, the food is still technically on point and executed well for flavor and creativity. I’m glad to call him a friend and happy he did 20 Questions to share a bit more about himself and his sense of humor with you.

Bill Kim has three restaurants and a line of signature sauces. All the sauces are great and should be a staple in any kitchen pantry. You can buy them at the restaurants, Mariano’s and other grocers around Chicago.
