A proud Argentinian with a rich Japanese heritage, Chef Cristian Goya’s passion for food began in his childhood kitchen and swiftly catapulted him into a number of world-renowned kitchens. After his successful journey as Head Chef of Summersalt in Jumeirah Al Naseem (Dubai), Chef Crisitan’s culinary journey continues as he spearheads KAYTO pop-up, the hotel’s brand-new restaurant showcasing the unique blend of his Japanese-Argentinian heritage.
