Kenneth Wan

Helmed by the husband-and-wife team Chef Kenneth Wan and Doris Yuen that brought us META Asian Kitchen, MAKfam, represents America’s new Asian culinary movement that is reimagining tradition- and family-inspired Chinese recipes through a modern lens. Whether it’s Hong Kong-Style French Toast, hand-made dumplings inspired by visits to Chinatown in NYC, or stir fry dishes like Spicy Garlic Butter Rice Cakes, Wan and Yuen seeks to create their own third culture Chinese cuisine, fusing childhood memories, family recipes, and traditions with their own cultural journey from Hong Kong to New York City to Jersey City to Denver. Each nostalgic bite at MAKfam is a reverent nod to Wan and Yuen’s journey. Behind the doors, MAKfam is dedicated to providing a work culture that honors ingenuity, creativity and respect to promote the wellbeing of staff and the longevity of their careers. As an Asian-owned small business, MAKfam is passionately committed to lifting AANHPI voices by creating community and events that bring awareness to the Asian diaspora.
