Uchibā’s Uncommon Ramen, the monthly series celebrating innovative collaborations with Uchibā’s Executive Sous Chef Rhonda McCullar and renowned chefs from around the country, features the ingenuity of Chef Hung Huyn for its June release. Since launching in 2017, the Uncommon Ramen series has boasted such celebrated chefs as Tommy Lee, Chris Shepherd, Aaron Franklin and Tyson Cole, among others.
Born in Saigon, Vietnam, Hung Huyn began his craft at an early age, working in his family’s Asian restaurant in Massachusetts at the age of 10. Forgoing culinary school due to the cost, he took a job in Puerto Rico that led to securing a position at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in San Juan which funded his education at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA.)
After graduating from the CIA in 2002, Huynh worked his way through many of Manhattan’s top kitchens. In 2006, he moved to Las Vegas to help open the iconic, three Michelin starred Guy Savoy. In 2007, on a whim, Huynh attended an open casting call for Bravo TV’s reality cooking show Top Chef, ultimately winning the title of Top Chef. In 2011, he became Executive Chef of CATCH in the Meatpacking District.
In 2015, Huynh left behind the successful empire he helped build in order to pursue other passions and goals. Hung Huynh has been featured in top publications around the country, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Food & Wine, and more.
Needless to say that this will be an amazing bowl that you should not miss.
