About Me

Alex Kong is the owner of Seattle’s food truck Mangia Me and has been cooking for as long as he can remember. He grew up working in his parent’s Italian restaurant Perche’ No Pasta & Vino and developed his strong culinary skills. From cleaning tables off in front of the house to flipping pans in the back of the kitchen, Alex apprenticed under his father, classically-trained Chef David Kong. Here Alex learned how to craft fresh handmade pastas and sauces from scratch, while building a solid base of culinary skills.

Alex, a seasoned traveler, has seen many parts of the world from poverty to high riches, and food was a common language for social bonding. Each new place made for new adventures, traditions, cultures, and above all, lasting culinary experiences.

Food has always played a major role in Alex’s life whether it be with family, new and old friends, or alone half way around the world. Food has brought those he loves together, created a foundation and lifestyle for him and his family, and an outlet for his creativity and culinary passion.

From all of Alex’s experiences, he has made Mangia Me’s main focus to deliver affordable, healthy and outstanding Italian food made fresh everyday with love.
