The Duc Ngo
A restaurant by Mr. Ngo
“I’m a big fan of the multicultural food culture in the USA. It is simply spectacular how you can bring American and Asian cuisine together to create real taste explosions”
The Duc Ngo merges laid back Californian cuisine with pan-Asian flavours, for an inventive and unconventional menu boasting fresh and colourful dishes. The Japanese-Californian inspired cuisine includes new style sashimi and cheese udon noodles, and Mexican classics with a twist such as soft tacos with beef fillet, grilled sea bream with cajun fried vegetables and guacamole with crispy tortilla chips and Japanese shichimi spices.
Similar to all restaurants by The Duc Ngo, the space was designed by Hyunjung Kim, Ngo’s friend, business partner, muse and teacher in art and design. Light wood tables and upholstered seating mix with deep green granite surfaces and a contrasting dove blue and desert orange colour palette. Diners will notice a new, open salad and seafood bar amongst some remaining elements from the previous space, such as the dark golden velvet furnishings and Ngo’s highly committed team, welcoming both old and new guests to the rejuvenated restaurant.
A tribute to The Duc Ngo’s Chinese zodiac, the logo adorns a Chinese tiger believed to embody sensitivity and profundity behind his combative temperament – elements all conveyed through the delicate yet flavoursome cuisine and rich, abundant design. The restaurant is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, located at Roomers Frankfurt.
The Vietnam-born chef moved to Germany with his family aged five. Characterizing Asian cuisine in Germany like no other, The Duc Ngo is a true culinary innovator, known for his reinterpretation of the traditional sushi roll. Redefining sushi culture, The Duc Ngo opened his first restaurant Kuchi at the age of 24 in Berlin in 1999. Despite no formal training as a chef, Ngo runs some of Berlin’s most popular restaurants and often combines different cuisines to create unique and inventive dishes like no other.
Together with Micky Rosen and Alex Urseanu of Gekko Group, The Duc Ngo opened his first project outside of Berlin in July 2013: moriki. Located in the towers of Deutsche Bank, the restaurant was dubbed ‘the place to be in Frankfurt’ by The New York Times. This was followed by the joint opening of the second moriki in Roomers Baden-Baden and a year later, the Golden Phoenix in Berlin, in addition to contemporary concepts Madame Ngo, Funky Fisch, 893 Ryōtei, Cocolo Ramen and the Ngo Kim Pak.
