Jitaek started his first job as a dishwasher in LA when he was just 16 years old. He worked his way to become an executive chef at age 24. After 12 years in the restaurant world, he went on to open two sushi restaurants with little success.
Fortunately he decided to give it one last try in Silverlake, but this time he decided to focus on the food he loves the most: Ramen. The result is Silverlake Ramen!
