Raised in a family of exceptional cooks, bakers and even cake decorators, Chef JJ chose a culinary career for the fun it offers. He even has the words CHEF LIFE tattooed on his knuckles! He’s always interested to hear about everyone’s food journeys because it inspires him to experiment with his dishes. “I love to see a guest’s eyes light up when they take a bite of my food,” he says. With the Mexico border and California state line just 15 minutes away, the menus at Chef JJ’s medical center are a melting pot of flavors.
