Introducing EDI's celebrity chef: Shun VigerShun Viger is Fresh Bistro's powerhouse chef de cuisine. He first began cooking at a young age, earning his first scar from a hot popcorn kernel. Priding himself in his commitment to good, tasty food, Shun began his professional career working at various local restaurants including Salty's on Alki, Endolyne Joes, and 0/8 Seafood Grill. While Fresh Bistro is Shun's second home, he also enjoys eating pho for lunch at Than Brothers, late-night street tacos with hot sauce, and of course, snacking on popcorn - still a favorite. Shun is a graduate of the South Seattle Community College culinary program.
