In episode 45, we meet chef Sung Anh of Mosu, a Michelin-starred restaurant in San Francisco’s Fillmore District that offers a blend of refined Asian cuisine, with a focus on Korean menu elements. Mosu opened just over a year ago in what Eater called one of the country’s most anticipated restaurant openings. Chef Anh has a prestigious culinary background, which includes names like The French Laundry, Benu, and Aziza, so it’s hard to imagine that Anh once had a grittier life — as a troubled teen, he made a decision to set himself on the right path and joined the army, where he was exposed to a sense of discipline that has helped him rise to the success he has found as a chef.
The simple, Asian inspired interior at Mosu is as quiet to the ears as it is to the eyes — no music is played in the restaurant, to allow ultimate intimacy and attention to the food. In its first year, Mosu has already earned a Michelin star and chef Anh continues to push the restaurant and his vision forward.
