Prominent news anchor and TV host Grace Lee has undoubtedly succeeded in capturing the hearts and minds of the people of the Philippines with her natural grace, beauty, and talent. Recently, however, she has set her sights on another goal: Bringing together her two worlds – Korea and the Philippines, her birthplace and her hometown – through food.
They say that the fastest way to a person’s heart is through their stomach, and in fact, Grace has embodied this maxim with her most recent pursuits as a successful restaurateur, including the successful launching of Buta Wagyu in SM Aura and Atelier Vivanda in Forbestown Road. Of all her culinary ventures, however, the one that remains nearest and dearest to her heart is the rebranding of Hoolala to Kko Kko; from a successful, family-run traditional Korean restaurant to a more specialized restaurant that aims to provide its clientele with a rich and diverse cultural experience that accentuates a delicious yet affordable meal.
