His passion for the culinary world and family values stem from the kitchen table in youth where he learned to build bonds and relationships by connecting through food. HaiSous, which means “two pennies” in Vietnamese represents the humble beginnings of launching the restaurant. The modern Vietnamese cuisine celebrates tradition and pushes it to an elevated experience. HaiSous was nominated for Best New Restaurant in 2018 and Best Chef: Great Lakes 2019 by the James Beard Foundation.
