Mama Hen House Returns to Roost in Teaneck

After a multi-year hiatus, Mama Hen is back at it’s original home in Teaneck.

The family-owned, independent establishment (it originally opened back in 2015) is back as the chef spent three decades in traditional Korean cuisine – she decided to open the restaurant to relieve the cabin fever of the pandemic

During lockdown she took to making her own soy sauce, which they use as the base to most of their sauces. This ties with the restaurant concept of “authentic, home-cook-style food”.


Many dishes are “organic, locally sourced” and everything is made to order – literally everything is made from scratch and recipes are a house secret.

Their menu (see below) focuses on Korean comfort food staples: Korean-fried chicken, kimbap (Korean rice rolls), Korean street toast, and chicken katsu bento. It’s a small menu on purpose, so they can “focus on quality over quantity”. They also plan on selling homemade, authentic kimchi.

The 1000 square foot space inlcudes eighteen seats with dine-in, takeout and delivery available.

It’s currently open six days a week (closed Wednesdays).
