Lucas Sin

Lucas Sin is the Chef of Junzi Kitchen, a Northern Chinese fast food restaurant. Upon the fast food platform, he works towards building a genuine cultural translation of underrepresented Chinese cuisine for the American palate. The first location in New Haven is built as a space for collaboration and a medium for cultural diffusion: a first step towards building a global fellowship of eaters. During his time at Yale University, Sin studied narrative in the Cognitive Science and English. On campus, he founded the student-run restaurant incubator Y Pop-up and opened nine restaurants under his dorm. Beyond, Sin has worked in kitchens in the United States, Japan, and Hong Kong, where his home is. Recently, his stories and research on Chinese food have appeared in Lucky Peach, Cleaver Quarterly, and China Hands.
