"Being a foodie was a hobby. Asian kids didn't grow up to be chefs. If you weren't smart - you ended up in the kitchen. I never thought about cooking as a profession." [17:00]

"It's good to have rules, but ultimately I think a chef's job isn't about the food - it's about people coming in to the restaurant to have a good time. It's our job to facilitate that and it's not always about the food." [29:00]

"My friends should be able to come into the restaurant and before even tasting the food and say 'This reminds me of Hooni' " [39:00]

"Cheese tastes amazing - but if you just smell it, you'll never taste it. That's the same with Korean fermented food." [48:00]
