Chef Jeremy is a Chinese-American Portland native. He grew up cooking with his grandfather who was originally from Hilo, HI and eventually came to be a Chef in Portland for over 30 years. We call the Pidgin Hole cuisine an Island-inspired Asian fusion. Like pidgin the dialect, our menu is influenced by a variety of Island and Asian cultures and features many of the flavors Jeremy grew up on.
