Chef Q & A
1. Did anyone inspire you to become a chef? If not, what inspired you to start cooking?
My parents inspired me. I saw how hard they worked and wanted to help them more, so I started helping them in the kitchen.
2. What are your favourite ingredients to cook with?
I really like to use garlic. I like that it brings out the flavours in what I cook.
3. How often do you change your menu?
Not often enough. My parents are very old school. Thuận Kiều is very blessed with a lot of regular customers who love our menu the way it is.
4. How would you describe the food at your restaurant? What are some of your signature dishes??
We’re a very casual restaurant. Nothing fancy, but we value fresh ingredients. We make Pho everyday and a lot of pad thai.
