"Born in Burma and raised in San Francisco, Hubert grew up noshing on his dad's tea leaf salads and homemade noodle soups. In college, Hubert taught himself the art of grilling, earning a reputation among friends and family for his delicious baby back ribs. One day, in a flash of transcendent clarity, Hubert realized that his childhood dishes paired perfectly with his grilled meats -- the cinnamon seasoning of his BBQ ribs complimenting the warm spices of biriyani rice; the tartness of his garlic-lime prawns highlighted by a fresh noodle salad; the garlicky goodness of grilled chicken made even more homey over a bed of yellow pea fried rice. And thus, Burma Bear was born."
