A VIETNAMESE PHRASE MEANING NOISY, RAMBUNCTIOUS, RIOTOUS. MOST OFTEN USED BY PARENTS (HINT: OURS) TO SCOLD UNRULY, RAUCOUS CHILDREN IN THE BACK OF THE CAR.
Omsom was started to bring proud, loud Asian flavors to your fingertips any day of the week. No more diluted dishes, no more cultural compromise. Real deal Asian cuisine and communities are too damn delicious to deny.
Founded by Vanessa + Kim Pham, the sisters and co-founders behind Omsom. Thy are daughters of Vietnamese refugees, who grew up at their family’s kitchen counter, watching their Mẹ cook Viet dinners from scratch every night. Like so many Asian moms, this was her love language to her children.
In their past lives, they cut their teeth in startups and consulting. They returned to their roots to finally build the company of their dreams — one that proudly reclaims + celebrates the multitudes to be found in Asian flavors, stories, and communities.
This is our fiery love letter to our people (that’s you!), our food, and our Phamily (both ancestors and chosen).
