Episode 13: Jū-Ni Dreams of Sushi


Geoffrey Lee, executive chef and partner at Jū-Ni, a Michelin star omakase sushi restaurant, joins us this week to talk about his approach to kitchen and dining culture, his experience as a Chinese American sushi chef, and the Bay Area sushi scene. He takes us through his journey from grilling chicken and washing dishes to opening and running a Michelin star restaurant. On Hella Asian, Geoffrey reflects on his subversive and traditional Asian tendencies. Tune into IRL where Nicole walks us through a tour of the Museum of Chinese in America in New York.
