Chef Haikal’s resume includes being an executive chef for the Water Library group in Bangkok and Alma by Juan Amador, the latter of which was where he was awarded his Michelin star. It wasn’t all sunshine and roses— Chef Haikal was involved in a motorcycle accident in 2015 which doctors said would leave him paralysed for life.
