Yo yo wyo! Actually, if there's one specific style that I'm basing my strengths on is definitely pacific fusion. Coming from Hawaii, what else could there be right? Chefs like Sam Choy, Roy Yamaguchi, and Alan Wong got their name out by introducing pacific cuisine to the world. It's definitely too early in my career to truly concentrate on one. It's mainly on getting experience in the business is no 1 right now.

So is my thing. 8)
