A conversation with chef Yia Vang of Union Hmong Kitchen
Chef Yia Vang of Union Hmong Kitchen was supposed to open his first restaurant, but then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and put that on hold.
How is he adapting during this time?
We also talked about his childhood in a Thai refugee camp, his first English lesson, living in the Amish country of Pennsylvania and having his food on the cover of Bon Appetit magazine.
Yia Vang is the chef and owner of Union Hmong Kitchen, a pop-up restaurant currently located outside Sociable Cider Werks in northeast Minneapolis.
