Young Kim

Head Chef - Sushi

Chef Young Kim-cafe ile.jpg

Young Kim is the head chef.

Literally, it is a pivotal role corresponding to the "Head" in the sushi part.

All he thinks about is food. He is a chef who contemplates the menu throughout the entire day and observes the facial expressions and reactions the moment the guests taste.

He is the one who always listens to and accepts the opinions of others without relying solely on his experience and judgment as a chef. After the dish is delivered to the guest table, he never forgets to check with the server how the guest feels about it.


The walk; that he decided to learn sushi and entered holding a knife at the age of 20. Since he became head chef with his skills at a young age, he must have had a lot of emotional conflicts with other older staff. Maybe that's why he is taciturn. Not only does he have few words, he limits facial expressions. He is a thoughtful man who is not light-minded.

When asked who was the teacher who influenced him the most, "YouTube." he replied. What is your food philosophy? To the question, "If it's delicious, it's good!" he answered. He is a very simple and self-motivated person.


When asked about his family, he spoke immediately. "My wife is wise. I became a real person after meeting her."

Having a lovely daughter and son, he is also a wonderful father who fulfills his responsibilities and duties as a head of household.


Young Kim, who doesn't brag about himself, has also demonstrated his skills as a chef at Nobu Washington DC and Sushi Nakazawa.
