May, and they call their relatives, he opened his first store in Chinatown, specifically in a dingy garage from which attracted the attention not only of local diners, but also distinguished customers that led to stardom.
But what is exceptional in the case of May is that in order to become a successful chef did not attend Arabian cooking classes, or go through the kitchen run by a Michelin chef. No, all he needed was the chef Mahasrabphaisal YouTube, the popular video sharing platform and widely used by chefs and restaurants.
