Mina Park trained on the West Coast at Tartine and Mei Lin’s Nightshade before she moved to New York in October 2020, where she launched her pop-up bakery 99. Inspired by the cream cakes traditionally encountered in Asian bakeries, 99’s creations are less saccharine and surprisingly light, pairing whipped mousse and pureed fillings with seasonal fresh fruits. She has also thrown cake pop ups at Rhodora and Leo, including a collaboration with Ha’s Dac Biet at the latter.
