BAB Korean Bistro Is Opening in Malden

A Korean restaurant in Brookline appears to be expanding to a new space north of Boston.

According to a tweet from @goatrockss, BAB Korean Bistro is apparently opening in Malden, with the picture shown indicating that it is taking over the space on Centre Street that had been home to Mimi's Roast Beef and Seafood. The original location of BAB, which first opened on Beacon Street in Brookline in the spring of 2018, offers such items as seaweed soup, shumai, bulgogi, bibim bab, japchae, katsu, hot pot, and more.

The address for the new location of BAB Korean Bistro in Malden is 205 Centre Street, Malden, MA, 02148. The website for the Brookline location can be found at
