Ann Ahmed Owner / Executive Chef

Chef Ann Ahmed grew up in the kitchen with her mom and grandmother. Ann knew she wanted to own a restaurant ever since she was 14 years old. In 2005, her dream came true - Ann opened Lemon Grass Thai Cuisine in Brooklyn Park. Serving colorful and original dishes inspired by her travels around the world, Ann quickly gained a reputation for her unique Laotian spin on traditional Thai food.

Fast forward to 2018. After 13 years, Lemon Grass has grown from a tiny restaurant with just 10 tables to a larger restaurant with a sushi bar that seats 100. Now, Ann is ready for a new challenge. Lat14 Asian Eatery will allow Ann to experiment with unique flavor profiles without limitations and will give Minnesotans the opportunity to journey to different countries and cultures by experiencing their distinct flavors.

Michael Yuen Sous Chef

For as long as he can remember, Michael has always been fascinated by food. After his family immigrated to the U.S. from Hong Kong, his father’s family opened several Cantonese-style restaurants in Chicago’s Chinatown in the 1970’s. Michael spent much of his childhood in the kitchen alongside his grandmother. She happily taught him everything she knew about cooking authentic dishes and Michael was eager to learn. Her influence was instrumental in Michael’s decision to pursue a career in the kitchen. He eventually left Chicago for the Twin Cities and attended culinary school at the Art Institute of Minnesota. Soon after graduating in 2016, Michael landed a role as Sous Chef at the Lexington in St. Paul. He’s excited to bring the unique skills he’s learned from his grandmother to the kitchen at Lat14 and honored to be able to tell their story through the dishes he creates.
