Zoe Ma Ma
Anna Zoe (everyone simply calls her Ma Ma) is the chef and inspiration for Boulder’s beloved Zoe Ma Ma restaurant. She was born in Taiwan during World War II under Japanese occupation. She came to Boulder in 2010 to be with her son, Edwin Zoe, after the passing of her life-long love and husband of 50 years. Edwin thought it was be great for Ma Ma to have something to do and selfishly asked her if she would make the delicious Chinese and Taiwanese home cooking and street food he loved to eat. At age 75, she works 7 days a week making food with love. Pretty “Bad Ass”, don’t you think?
