Quang “Ryan” Tran, co-founder and chef of “3 Pho Bowl 09” restaurant was born and raised in Soc Trang, Vietnam until the age of eight, where his father, Xuong Tran, paid the government all that he owned to allow his family to leave the country. From a booming business to the place they called home, Ryan and his nine siblings left Vietnam in 1978 in pursuit of the better life his father envisioned for them; a better life that has allowed Ryan to ultimately pursue his passion in cooking and serving others within his own restaurant here in the country. Upon embarking this pursuit, Ryan has been able to carry not only on the business talents and wit of his father, but also the gift of cooking and servitude of his mother, Cua. Upholding these vital traits of his parents, Ryan strives to carry on their legacy, particularly his mother’s hospitable warmth. Known by everyone as “Mom”, Cua found immeasurable joy seeing family and friends gathered under the same roof for a delicious meal. Inspired to provide a culinary experience as comforting and welcoming just as his mother timelessly modeled, Ryan cooks and serves others with these memories of his mother in mind and heart.
