A sense of wanderlust inspired ICHU’s Korean-born Head Chef Sang Jeong to travel the world in pursuit of culinary excellence. He brings over a decade of international experience to this latest project.
A protégé of visionary chef Virgilio Martínez, Chef Sang spent over three years at Martinez’s award-winning Central Restaurant in Lima. Working alongside Martinez, Sang mastered the art of Peruvian cuisine, a vibrant food culture inspired by a rich hybrid of culinary influences and indigenous traditions.
With an extensive knowledge of Peruvian ingredients and techniques, Chef Sang was appointed by Martinez to launch ICHU in Hong Kong. Known for his nuanced flavours and contemporary style, Chef Sang celebrates Peruvian culinary traditions.
“I am excited to introduce authentic Peruvian cuisine to Hong Kong diners,” says Chef Sang. “Our menu presents much-loved dishes and ingredients in a welcoming, casual atmosphere. Our intention is to recreate the fun, relaxed experience you find when dining in local Lima restaurants.”
