Restau­rants: Café George, Oh Ge­org Best sell­ers: Spinach Dip, Lasagna, Choco­late Deca­dence Cake

Pro­file: “You know those peo­ple who don’t know any­thing about the food business but say, ‘ I want to open a restau­rant?’” Chef Bunny Ludo ad­mits, “I was one of those peo­ple.” It’s hard to be­lieve that Ludo, who is equally skilled in both the kitchen ( her food of­fer­ings con­sist of var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional fla­vors) and the pas­try depart­ment ( her cakes are well- loved by many Ce­buanos), wanted to own a restau­rant be­fore she even knew how to prop­erly use a knife.

The few months be­fore she stud­ied at the Cal­i­for­nia Culi­nary Academy in San Francisco were spent do­ing an un­paid in­tern­ship, one that wasn’t re­quired of her, but some­thing she took upon her­self any­way. It is this sense of ini­tia­tive, cou­pled with her want to al­ways be­come more knowl­edge­able and skill­ful, that has turned her once ob­scure dream of be­com­ing a restau­ra­teur into a re­al­ity, and a very suc­cess­ful one, at that.
