Unfortunately, those first years in the US were quite challenging, and in 2012 she managed to bravely escape from an abusive relationship. It was the time for a new beginning, and she decided to share her passion for her delicious native cuisine with her new home: San Francisco.
With the support of her family and friends, Bini applied to La Cocina, a food incubator program, which focuses on supporting immigrant women, and people of color to become food entrepreneurs. Leveraging their knowledge, experience, and guidance, Bini’s Kitchen was born. Bini was soon serving her famous MoMos, Gurkha chicken, palungo paneer, chai tea, and other Nepalese staples at farmers markets, catering events, and Off the Grid throughout the Bay Area.
Bini’s Kitchen brings the best Nepali food from the foothills of the Himalayas to San Francisco, and it’s been a huge success. Everything is made with love and passion, from the home ground spices, traditional preparations to local ingredients and unique cooking techniques. The restaurant now offers catering services for events and city-wide delivery and pickup of freshly cooked Nepali meals and frozen MoMos.
