Lee Villalun embodies the spirit of Aloha. Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, he grew up cooking with his father and grandparents. Throughout his childhood, they taught him both the fundamentals of cooking, from butchering livestock and filleting fish, as well as how to cook a wide array of classic Hawaiian, Filipino and Asian dishes.
At 16, Chef Lee started his restaurant journey like many as a dishwasher, and over many years got a chance to experience many different front and back of house positions until realizing cooking was where his heart belonged all the time. His time with Island Sushi & Grill (ISG) began in 2011; in 2021 he celebrated his 10th anniversary with the restaurant by taking the reins as Executive Chef.
