The setting and presentations are extraordinary, just like the An family story, and now you can dine your way through Chef Helene An’s most personal journey.

If you have spent any time dining in the Beverly Hills area, you will know that Crustacean has become a local institution.  Founder and chef Helene (Mama) An is often referred to as the “mother of fusion cuisine” and her signature garlic noodles are a favorite dish of everyone from George Clooney to Leonardo DiCaprio.

The brand-new concept Da Lat Rose has actually been a passion project of the seasoned chef for quite some time but this new culinary experience is not another multi-course tasting menu.  This is a gastronomic-biography of Chef An’s dramatic life events as a Vietnamese refugee to her rise in the California culinary world.
