Foreign Concept is located in Calgary’s Beltline neighborhood and is home to award-winning chef Duncan Ly. The restaurant brings to life Ly’s vision for modern Pan-Asian cuisine. 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 flavors, 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.
The restaurant has a laundry list of mentions and awards, to add to it, Chef Duncan Ly recently announced he will be competing in Iron Chef Canada in the Fall, a 20 year bucket list item for him!
