Bruce Ricketts

Young and talented, chef ‘Broosy’ as he’s known to foodie circles has proven to the world that age has nothing to do with success. One of Manila’s brightest chefs, he is most proud of the restaurants (majority of which serve Japanese cuisine – be it traditional or fusion) that he’s had the opportunity to be a part of. At only 27, this impressive palate and restaurateur has made stellar contributions to the Filipino culinary scene such as the trendsetting Mecha Uma, the hole-in-the-wall Sensei Sushi, the hip Ooma, and La Chinesca. Bruce studied Culinary Management at the Art Institutes of California and then before returning to Manila, he paid his dues in famous restaurants stateside building on a skill set that would serve him well back home.

What inspires him: Ingredients and rediscovering techniques that elevate simplicity to a whole new level.
