July: Chef Mei Lin, Winner of Top Chef season 12

Mei Lin is a chef with truly humble beginnings. At only 3 months old, Mei Lin immigrated to the US where she was raised in the kitchen of her family’s restaurant. Her fostered work ethic and self-driven motivation brought her to adored restaurants such as Wolfgang Puck’s Spago Vegas and Michael Voltaggio's ink. in Los Angeles where she demonstrated and solidified her abilities as a true chef.

Chef Mei Lin is most recognized for her winning title of Top Chef during the Bravo TV show’s 12th season where she perpetually created astoundingly colorful dishes that seemed to dance from their plates. Since her big win, Mei Lin has decided to dedicate her time to travel and research, trotting around the globe to find and taste inspiration one continent at a time. We are grateful and excited that Poke Mon made it onto her destination checklist.
