My guest today is Josh Ku managing partner of Win Son the popular Taiwanese-American restaurant located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Ku originally from Queens is a first generation Taiwanese American. His parents immigrated here in their mid-twenties so his father could attend school. Ku is not a chef so he’s an unusual and exciting guest for the show. His background is based more in operations and construction. In 2014, Ku and his friend Trigg Brown, a chef, began discussing opening a restaurant together. They visited Ku’s family in Taiwan and ate extensively helping educate themselves about dishes that would end up influencing the food they’ve created at Win Son. They opened in May 2016 and have received praise from multiple outlets including a best of 2016 from The Village Voice. and are currently developing a new project Win Star a casual taiwanese cafe set to open in 2019.
