12 Under 35: Andrea Xu of Umamicart

Four years at Goldman Sachs. An MBA from MIT Sloan.

Umamicart's New Thai Tea Jam Is Highly Addictive

For several years, I lived in Los Angeles’ Thai Town in East Hollywood, and I think it’s fair to say that my Thai iced tea habit got a little out of hand. See, Thai iced tea is always a pleasure, no doubt, but the food in LA’s Thai Town in crazy-good (and famous for being such—shoutout to Jitlada, Sapp Coffee Shop, and Ruen Pair), and the Thai teas there are next-level—so creamy, rich, lightly spiced, and served over that wonderful tiny crushed ...

My experience with Umamicart

I also thought the design and navigation were better and more organized than that of Weee! , another online Asian grocery service I've tried.

Produce and protein prices on Umamicart aren't always consistent with those of online grocery delivery ...

Umamicart bags $6M to deliver traditional Asian ingredients right to your home

Xu's parents are Chinese, but moved to Spain, opening up their own Chinese restaurant. She recalls the grocery stores not having the kinds of sauces, thinly-sliced meat cuts and vegetables common in Asian cuisine.

I Tried Umamicart, a New Online Asian Grocer — Here’s My Honest Review

As a Filipino-American who grew up in the suburbs of Washington state, I remember having to drive an hour away to the nearest Asian market. Even now, as a Brooklyn resident, the closest Asian market is still about a 45-minute train ride away. Because I’m a recipe developer and a home cook who uses ingredients from many different Asian countries and cultures, having easy access to the groceries that inspire me is super important. That’s why I’m ...
