OUR STORY BEGINS IN KEELUNG, TAIWAN
Our owner, Joe Luo, decided to move back to Taiwan in 2014 after 30 years in the United States. With a goal and dream in mind, he opened his first restaurant the following year in Keelung, Taiwan. He was taught and mentored by his father-in-law, Chef Huang Wen Shung. Chef Huang has over 40 years of experience in Taiwanese cuisine including working as a private chef for Wang Yung-ching, a businessman who built a multibillion-dollar plastics company.
In the 18 months that Joe's restaurant was open, his authentic gua bao recipes caught the attention of the media leading to four food show features. This validation and success launched the plan to move the restaurant to the United States.
Love Bao Taiwanese Kitchen opened in Cary, NC in July 2019.
