If you're a fan of Bravo's Top Chef
, you'll no doubt recall Season 3 contestant (and eventual winner) Hung Huynh and his "out of the box" creations
Since that 2007 win, Huynh has been a
Top Chef Season 3 winner Hung Huynh
bit of a journeyman chef, kicking around various Manhattan kitchens before teaming up with the EMM Group in 2011 to open Catch and now-closed The General.
After a less than cordial departure from EMM in 2015
, Huynh took time to travel, appeared on Chopped All-Stars
, and staged a series of pop-ups around New York City.
But on May 21, the Vietnamese-born chef who was raised in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, will open his Asian street food concept Mamaling's
– in a Palm Coast strip mall, of all places.
Judging from Mamaling's Instagram feed
, noodles will be offered (duh!) as will these wicked-looking watermelon radish tacos with hamachi tartare.
Watermelon radish tacos, hamachi tartare, yuzu koshu, cilantro
According to Google Maps, it'll take a little over an hour to get to the Palm Coast eatery from Orlando.
Now say it with me: Road trip!
