The 49-year-old chef is a celebrity in the food industry. He has a vast array of restaurants, television shows, and cookbooks to his name. His fame has earned him a good amount of money. He has a huge fan base across the world.
He studied at the Culinary Institute of America, where he learned how to cook and served his way through some of New York's top restaurants, including Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin and the Beverly Hills Hilton (via NextShark). But then, his career took a turn for the worse. Choi lost his job, and he was forced to start over from scratch.
After that, he opened the Kogi food truck, where he revolutionized American cuisine. The restaurant paired Korean and Mexican dishes together to create something unique and delicious. This made the food truck a hit on social media and other platforms.
Apart from running the food truck, Choi has a few restaurants in California. These include Sunny Spot, which serves Caribbean dishes, Chego!, which features rice bowls, and A-Frame, which reflects the Hawaiian idea of aloha. He has also hosted a TV show titled Chef on Netflix, as well as a TV series titled Broken Bread on Tastemade and KCET.
Choi keeps his personal life private, but he is married. He and his wife have a daughter named Kaelyn. The two have been together for a long time and are very happy. They recently celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary.
