Michael Bao Huynh has joined Evason Ana Mandara as the resort’s executive chef. In 1982, Huynh headed to New York and lived with an upstate family that owned an Italian restaurant. He trained and worked there, moving up the ranks from sous-chef to executive chef. Three years later, and still at his chef post, Huynh decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and study architecture. In 2001, Huynh opened his own restaurant, named Bao 111. Soon after, he added Mai House restaurant to his portfolio.
