FOREIGN CONCEPT | PAN asian cuisine | downtown Calgary

In January 2017, Calgary’s Beltline neighborhood became home to award-winning chef Duncan Ly and his vision for modern Pan-Asian cuisine, Foreign Concept.┬áHere, the dishes take flavour profiles from Duncan’s Vietnamese roots, infused with inspiration from executive chef Jinhee Lee’s Korean background and their combined love for bold flavours, charm and whimsy.

The duo’s commitment to sustainable, seasonal and local ingredients makes the dining experience at Foreign Concept a true fusion of their passion for scratch made food, traditional cooking techniques presented with modernity.
