From a young age, it was Chef Phil’s watching his mother cook traditional Vietnamese cuisine with skill and heart that inspired him to pursue a career in culinary. He took his mastery of cooking to the thriving streets of Toronto where he began his culinary journey at L’unita in Yorkville. It was there that he met his mentor, Chef Michael Angeloni. As Chef Phil explored an array of cuisines, his experience ranged from Grand Electric and Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse to the opening of Hotel X Toronto. Chef Phil is ready to embrace his Vietnamese roots and share the foods from his childhood through his finely crafted recipes.
