About Chef Hoa Le

Chef Hoa Le was born and lived part of her childhood in South Viet Nam. Like many other individuals that immigrated to the United States, she looked for opportunities to learn, to work, to obtain the freedom of pursuing whatever career she desired. She is a chemist, a microbiologist, an artist, an entrepeneur, and a chef by heart. Her passions lie in the culinary world. Chef Summer loves to travel, discovers new flavors, and shares them with the people. Hence the birth of Shaka. 

Shaka is a hand gesture that Hawaiian use for casuallt greeting with a friendly intent. A perfect name of Chef Summer's restaurant since her vision is to offer Hawaiian fusion cuisine to her community at a friendly and casual atmosphere. Poke bowls, spam musubi, and grilled huli huli chicken and dishes that you can find on Shaka's menu.
