Thank y’all again for a wonderful birthday dinner for my Dad last week, he has told everyone he knows about his surprise birthday dinner haha. And we all agree that we’ll never order crab cakes anywhere else because no crab cake will ever be as good as Chef David’s! Thanks again!

Chef Pan was amazing! He came to our condo in Gulf Shores to prepare a meal for a Birthday celebration. He was very easy to work with, the food was incredible, and he tailored the food around our preferences. He chatted with us while he prepared the food about not only what he was cooking, but also the area in general. Very highly recommended!!
