We had the good fortune of connecting with Chef Kang and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chef, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
First it was passion for cooking, second love of seeing people smile after tasting my food and joy of doing what I love as a career. 

What should our readers know about your business?
Chef Kang Food Truck , Chef Kang Foodrehab, Chef Kang Sulbox , Chef Kang Korean Taco. My culinary career began at home 5 years ago. My wife boosted my cooking comfidence and started a home based lunch box service, after 3 months word got around and started catering business, than opened my first food truck called chef kang food truck. After gaining more business part of food business I opened my first restaurant called chef kang food rehab, than opened a Korean style gastropub call chef kang Sulbox and lastly opened chef kang Korean taco. The lesson I learned is that if there one person in your life truly believes in what ever you do , you can achieve extraordinary things. I want to reach out and let people know that it’s never too late to go after your passion, if you are thinking about a career change for your dream, that time is now. I started my dream at age 45 and it’s a life changing joy.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would give my friend a tour of Koreatown. There are so many good eatery and diverse restaurants within small area. From fine dining, casual and even street food. Plenty of fun night life including bars, karaoke, clubs and new cultural experiences in one spot.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate my success and achievements to my dear wife. Without her dedicated support and unconditional love, there is no Chef Kang.
