Isabel Cruz is a self-taught chef with a passion for food. Drawing influence from her Latino roots and inspired by the Korean, Thai, and Japanese families living nearby, Isabel found her unique flavor. The combination of Latin and Asian infused flavor transform traditional dishes into exotic plates that appeal to all your senses.

“Food is my passion. At breakfast I’m thinking about lunch. At lunch I’m thinking about dinner. I love the shopping, the preparing and the eating. I love the joy of a great meal. Ok, I don’t love the cleaning up.” – Isabel
