Chef at one of Vietnam's top restaurants.

Chef Uyen was born on Phu Quoc Island one of the most beautiful places in Vietnam where 80% of the fish sauce is made with local anchovies. The fish sauce refineries are considered to be the best in the world. Chef Uyen has always been inspired by her mom to cook. She left her native island to study at the Saigon Tourist Culinary School in Ho Chi Minh City.

She started her career working in a local restaurant specializing in Hue City Style cuisine where she learned the most ancient style of Vietnamese Cuisine. She was recruited to Hoa Tuc Restaurant, one of the top restaurants in Vietnam, where she further developed her skills. Hoa Tuc Restaurant redefined Vietnamese cuisine by injecting endless creativity while utilizing!ingredients of the highest quality. They’ve been featured in publications including Elle Magazine, France & Luxembourg, Geo Magazine, Ethiad Airlines, Air France and Air Asia magazines and many more.

In 2017, Chef Uyen became a cooking instructor for Hoa Tuc which allowed her to share her passion and knowledge of Vietnamese Cuisine with travellers from all over the world and was able to gain knowledge of global cuisines and cultures. She's so excited to welcome you into her kitchen and help you dive into Vietnamese cuisine!
