stan chang

Head Chef

South Korea born, from Pusan, Stan Chang made the move to Vancouver with his family when he was 15 years old. Him and his family sought out a better quality of life when they entered Canada. Stan has fond memories observing his grandfather as he worked as a cook in Taiwan – he recounts these memories as being fascinated by the culinary arts. This was a large motivator behind his desire to become a chef.
Growing up, choosing a career path was challenging for Stan since his parents wanted him to study business or medical. He ended up attending university at the University of British Columbia in Kelowna for Management but he always knew that Culinary was his true calling. In 2014, he moved to Ottawa and studied at Le Cordon Bleu. From there, he had the opportunity to work with Jungsik; two star Michelin chef and he also worked at up and coming restaurants and catering within the city.
One of Chef Chang’s biggest accomplishments is serving in the National Taiwan Army. His experience in the army taught him valuable morals like patience and the importance of hierarchy. Stan uses these morals to fuel his culinary mastery at Papi’s. He looks forward to continuing to develop his team and increase recognition of Papi’s in the Vancouver hospitality scene.
