What inspired you to become a chef / food biz owner?
Our parents. Being amazing cooks and business owners, it inspired us to open our own business and build something we’re passionate about.
Why did you want to highlight the food you are creating?
We grew up loving spicy Cambodian food and wanted to put our own interpretation on hot sauce!
What is your favorite dish? Is there a story behind it?
The recipe we’re sharing with you “Katiew Kaw Ko” is this rich rice noodle dish that has so much depth in flavor, it’s hard not to love. Especially growing up in the a colder climate, it’s comfort food for us.
What does courage mean to you?
Courage is taking a chance on something you might not achieve.
Where can we expect to see you in the next few years?
Our goal is to be in every major US city in the next 2 years.
