Meet Sam Pang & Karel Zhu
Sam and Karel have each spent five years learning to be a chef and three additional years learning to be a sushi chef. They are passionate about their work, and enjoy bringing an authentic Japanese experience to their customers.
Although they spend a lot of time in the restaurant, Sam and Karel also try to make time in their schedules for hobbies. Karel is a fisherman and enjoys spending time at the many lakes in the area. Sam likes to take road trips on his beloved motorcycle. He is also a DJ on the side and enjoys working local parties.
Dynamic. Fresh. Creative.
It takes years of training to become a traditional sushi chef. A Me Su owners and sushi chefs Sam Pang and Karel Zhu trained for eight years and their skills are in high demand around the world. But both partners were looking for a quiet place to call home and start a traditional-style sushi restaurant of their own. When they visited Quesnel, says Sam, they both “got a good feeling” and decided to build their business here.
Their mission is to provide Quesnel with high-quality, traditional-style sushi and other Japanese dishes that are comparable to and better than what you might find in a big city. So far, they say, their guests have raved about the menu. They use fresh seafood, vegetables and other ingredients to create their dishes and even include their own, exclusive stamp on their customers’ wasabi that means A Me Su. They also source many of their ingredients directly from Japan, resulting in an authentically Japanese food experience.
