Worachai "Chao" Thapthimkuna
Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar
Born in Thailand, Chao is the personification of our multi-cultural bent. Before meeting Mike and beginning the Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar project, he worked at some of Chicago’s best sushi restaurants including Sushi Wabi. Chao is prone to working 18-hour days, but when he is not working, he loves collecting sneakers, biking around the city and hanging out with his pet hedgehog.
