Chef Kelvin Cheung
Chef & Partner
Born in Canada, raised in Chicago, and based in Dubai, Kelvin Cheung is a Chinese-Canadian who grew up in the kitchen. This third-generation chef spent the better part of his childhood training for his life of traveling the world and cooking in kitchens in unfamiliar places.
Cheung’s culinary style draws inspiration from his Chinese heritage, his North American upbringing, and French training, coupled with the freshest ingredients from local farms. His culinary abilities are limitless as he bases his menu on his own personal adventures, which always result in unique and captivating dishes. His larger-than-life personality shines brightly across the industry, as does his down-to-earth approach and exceptional interpersonal skills.
In 2021, the award-winning chef moved to Dubai with Three Layer Hospitality as Chef & Partner of Jun’s on Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, the modern dining experience with fun, inventive borderless cooking where chef Kelvin is one of the region's pioneers and proponents of Third Culture Food. In 2023, the team opened Little Jun's in Time Out Market Dubai with a unique menu created just for the the market. This is just the beginning of an aggressive expansion plan in the region.
Chef Kelvin has had the opportunity to cook for all-star NBA players at the Make-A-Wish Foundation charity gala, alongside cooking for Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. Kelvin also took part in a sustainability initiative at Soneva Maldives Resort recently to raise awareness of regenerative efforts within the industry, aligning with his personal views on sustainability. These charitable and positive initiatives impact both Kelvin’s and Jun’s already-credible reputations within the industry.
A dedicated family man and wellness advocated, when he is not in the kitchen, Kelvin spends time his time with his son, Bodhi, working out at the local Crossfit Box, and attempting to cultivate a mediation practice. Chef Kelvin Cheung approaches his professional and culinary life with humor and burning passion.
