Q&A With Our Chef, Vui

The Nashville Scene writer, Lesley Lassiter, interviewed Vui Hunt to discuss how she developed the idea for Vui's Kitchen. After marrying her husband, John Hunt, Vui relocated from Atlanta to Nashville, and together they started Juice Bar. Three short years later, Vui has now created a restaurant that truly reflects her passion: to create and bring fresh and healthy Vietnamese food from her childhood to everyone. 

Now, for the fun part, lets get to know our chef, Vui Hunt a little bit better!

Vital tool: A super sharp chef’s knife
Favorite gadget: No “secret weapon” gadgets ... a Vitamix blender is always handy
Pantry essential: Jasmine rice
Necessary extravagance: I spare no expense on footwear!
Favorite beverage: Fresh-squeezed sugar-cane juice, twist of lime
Favorite smell: Fresh-picked mint leaves
Comfort food: Vietnamese “Hue style” spicy noodles. Or just salty chips.
