About Chef Uno
Uno Immanivong is a first generation Asian American of Laotian descent. She was born in a Thai refugee camp where her parents dreamed of giving her a better life. That determination led them to America.
Uno pursued a 16-year banking career and although she flourished in her craft, the dream of nourishing people with food inspired by her childhood always lingered.
She auditioned for a reality cooking show with Anthony Bourdain and, when he chose to mentor her, it massively altered the course of her life. As ephemeral as that opportunity was, it broke through a belief system that empowered her to follow her heart and take a chance on life. In 2013, Uno left banking to pursue her passion for cooking and the journey created the hugely popular, Chino Chinatown in Trinity Groves, Red Stix Asian Street Food, and Chef Uno Brands.
Uno’s life has been a series of choices, big and small, strung together by hope, faith, and love. It’s been almost 7 years since her transition from banking and she has built several concepts, with menus inspired by moments shared with her family in the kitchen and through their travels. Uno is a professional of integrity and strong customer-centric approach that seeks to make the world a tastier place, one bite at a time.
