About Busaba

GAN GIN GAN YUU

Gan Gin Gan Yuu means ‘as you eat, so you are’. It is an axiom which parallels Brillat-Savarin’s ‘you are what you eat’ but goes further to suggest that you also define yourself by your approach to food. The choice of ingredients, preparation and presentation are all indicative of who you are.

SOOKJAI

Our living ethos is ‘Sookjai’. Based on traditional Buddhist values, sookjai is about avoiding the everyday chaos that distracts you. Instead, focus on taking life as it comes and creating your own reality. Literally, its meaning is ‘to enjoy’ and ‘happy heart’.
