Alvin Cailan has risen to become arguably the most high-profile
chef in America's Filipino food movement. He took the food scene by
storm when he opened the now-legendary Eggslut in Los Angeles, a
foodie cult favourite specialising in affordable but sophisticated
egg sandwiches. Alvin is now based in New York City, where his
latest critically acclaimed restaurant is The Usual. Alvin also
hosts the popular The Burger Show on First We Feast's YouTube
channel, with many episodes exceeding 1 million views and guests
such as Seth Rogen and Padma Lakshmi. Alvin's story of success,
however, is an unlikely one. He emerged from his youth spent as
part of an immigrant family in East LA feeling like he wasn't
Filipino enough to be Filipino and not American enough to be an
American, thus amboy, the term for a Filipino raised in America. He
had to first overcome cultural traditions and family expectations
to find his own path to success, and this unique cookbook tells
that story through his recipes.
