Hosted by Chicks Eat Vegan in Singapore
The ten Akira Back restaurants around the world are named after their founder, Chef Akira Back, who was born Sung Ook Back in Korea in 1974. Later, he went to Japan to pursue a baseball career and there was given the name Akira, before moving to the U.S. to pursue professional snowboarding. Finally, he found his true calling when he took up the study of the culinary arts. Since then, Chef Akira has gone from success to success, becoming an internationally renowned chef.
