B randon Jew, head chef and owner of San Francisco’s most popular Chinatown restaurant, Mister Jiu’s, never planned to cook as a career. In fact, he kind of stumbled into the kitchen by happenstance. “[In college] it was the only job opening in that area, and I didn’t have a car, so I just kind of went for it,” Brandon tells us. “I started as a busboy and then I became a food runner. One day one of the cooks didn’t come in, and the kitchen manager asked if I’d be willing to help out for the night. I did, and they offered me a job in the kitchen.”
