Episode Notes

Lucas Sin, Culinary Director of Junzi Kitchen, a chain of Chinese fast-casual restaurants, joins us to share his upbringing in Hong Kong, his takes on regional Chinese cooking, as well as his opinions on the ever controversial word in the modern culinary world ― "authentic."

A graduate of Yale University, Lucas met the Co-Founders of Junzi in New Haven, Connecticut. With a mission and purpose to change the perception and narrative of Chinese food, he set out to do exactly that.

Lucas started his culinary experience running a pop-up as a 16 year-old in an abandoned newspaper factory on the outskirts of Hong Kong and hasn't looked back since.
