Family Inspired

It all started in our kitchen at home. Mama Lan cooking up family recipes, while calling for less standing around and more doing. It was then that we decided we had to share—not just the food. The experience.

So, we opened up shop in 2003 with the mission to deliver the same authentic cuisine at a price people could afford. Over the past ten years, the ingredients have evolved but the dishes still tell a story. In fact, most things are just the way they were at home. We’re just cooking for a bigger family now.
