Our Story

"We craft wholesome Asian soups designed for busy individuals. Mom approved."

 

As most food stories do, ours begins with the home and our parents. Growing up, our co-founders distinctly remember mothers crafting savory Asian stews, a portion of which would always be frozen for later. Whenever life was busy, families would heat the frozen stews, add freshly cooked noodles and enjoy a quick, wholesome and delicious noodle soup at their convenience.

Life is fast in NYC. Too busy to cook daily, we were unexcited by what is often available - greasy take-out or store products with suspect quality/preservatives. So we borrowed Mom's cookbook and lovingly recreated her savory Asian soups that rejuvenate and restore.

By focusing on convenience and premium ingredients, we simply wish to help busy individuals #eatcleanfaster.

Rice is Nomz's lucky charm. His hobbies are being cute, providing cuddles and hanging out at Nomz Studios.
