Twenty-five years ago, Chetra Chau found his passion for cooking while working for his former family-in-law’s restaurant. Today, he owns and operates two of his own restaurants in Bedford.
Chef Chetra’s newest restaurant, The Dream Tacos, celebrated its grand opening in Bedford on July 1, about two weeks after its soft opening on June 15.
“Once we opened that door, the whole place got packed,” Chef Chetra recollects. “But that’s a good problem.”
The Dream Tacos serves as an extension of his global fusion concept from his first restaurant, Chetra’s Kitchen, incorporating French, Japanese, American and Asian cuisine with authentic Mexican flavors. The menu features everything from a Vietnamese-inspired banh mi taco to an Indian-inspired tandoori chicken taco to a Philly cheesesteak taco, inspired by the classic American sandwich.
“I love to take cuisine from around the world and use it with my flair, with the techniques and training that I [cultivated] working in French culinary for five-star hotels, ”says Chef Chetra. “Famous chefs inspire me, so I take their concepts and use them [for] my inspiration. ”
The restaurant is open every day starting at 11 am and is located at 2807 Central Drive in Bedford. To make a reservation, call 682.503.6373 or visit TheDreamTacos.com.
