I’m a chef with the bulk of my experience in New York City fine dining. My interest for Chinese cuisine has grown to passion after moving into Manhattan's Chinatown a few years ago. This neighborhood became my true home as I’ve built relationships with restaurant, bar & shop owners over the years. I’m passionate about sharing my love for Chinatown, its food & history with others.
