Stacy Chen, the creator and founder of Veggie Heaven.
Growing up in the family of chefs, has stirred her passion to cook since she was 12 years old. Her grandmother Mrs. Gui Chen, was a chef in Japan and she used to own a ramen shop in Osaka 30 years ago. Her dad Mr. Wen Chen was a chef in a vegetarian restaurant in California before helping Stacy with Veggie Heaven. Due to his health condition Mr.Chen didn’t stay with Veggie Heaven for a long time. Being the third generation chef in the Chens family, Stacy focused her flavor mainly from her heritage. At age 17, she and her mom and dad co-found Veggie Heaven in 1997. She has been the executive chef for VH at UT campus location and will remain the same for the new location. Her new menu items will still be focus toward comfort food as she feels like this restaurant is like her home. She has grown in this restaurant and has seen costumers grown in the restaurant as well, from their first date, to their first child, to see their child all grown up. Her flavor is mostly based on Taiwan, as it is her home country and where she spent her childhood.
