Meet the Chefs

Alex Santos-Cucalon

Thai Bamboo

My name is Chef Alex Santos-Cucalon. I am the Corporate Chef for Thai Bamboo Restaurants, the first person in the company to hold this title. I am a self-taught local chef born in Spokane, Wa. I thrive in the kitchen and demonstrate passion and execution for every service. I have worked in WA, ID, and CA restaurants ranging from fine dining to catering movies. In my 20 years of experience and counting, I have picked up numerous awards and recognitions along the way. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, pets, and the outdoors. I continue to support the local community and contribute to the food scene.
