Temple Street Eatery Offers Asian Fusion That Is Anything but Traditional

Alex Kuk grew up in a restaurant family.

When other kids were out playing after school, Kuk was at work. While his friends celebrated holidays, he and his family were busy waiting on festive diners.

"It's not your typical lifestyle," says Kuk. "Family time is creative. Dinner may be at midnight at the restaurant. It all comes with the territory; it's not your standard 9 to 5."

Kuk, the grandson of a Miami restaurateur and nephew of Christina Wan (of the eponymous Mandarin House), and his family have owned dining establishments throughout South Florida since 1966.

And his Temple Street Eatery is the latest addition to the Wan family's roster.
