Asian restaurant coming to White Star Market

Another Louisiana chef is making his way to downtown’s White Star Market.

Former Tsunami chef Vu Le will open Chow Yum Phat, an Asian-style eatery, according to The Advocate. Le feels the capital city needs more Asian flavors in its portfolio.

“When I visit bigger cities, I usually find myself at an izakaya, grilling up some Korean BBQ, or enjoying a face-melting bowl of dandan noodles,” Le said, according to The Advocate. “Mostly it’s all types of food I can’t find at home. I want to draw from those flavors, and incorporate them into my menu at White Star.”

Le is joined at White Star Market by a host of local chefs, such as Jay Ducote, Jesse Romero and Michael Mangham.
