I am always fascinated by the idea of blending cultures in my cuisine. My mission in my kitchens is to try and define what “American” cuisine means to a new generation that does not see the world in terms of distinct cultures. I am a combination of so many cultures and cuisines having grown up in the immigrant streets of Brooklyn and I love reflecting that in the recipes that come through my restaurants.

This is a healthy snack that can be enjoyed as a late night craving or as an accompaniment to your favorite sandwich or burger.  It converges the two ubiquitous snack items from both Asian and Southern cultures.  Together, they make a texturally layered bite that is both comforting and delicious.
