Meet Allen, our founder

Allen Huang was born in Taiwan at the beginning of the 1990s. At the age of 2, he and his family moved to South Africa and although he spent his childhood in South Africa, he never forgot his true heritage and culture, especially where food is concerned.

This great love and passion for his culture, motivated and inspired him to start A-Mart in 2018 along with a good friend, Tian.

In 2019, Allen took full ownership of the business with the main goal to provide the local market with authentic Asian products, keeping true to his heritage and culture. He enjoys travelling and has visited many Asian countries.

He uses these visits not only to refresh his soul but also to gain new inspiration for food. While exploring the markets, he gains fresh insights and reconnects with the hearts of the people.

Taiwanese foods remain his favourite, especially steamed pork bao, beef noodles and dumplings. Being an avid cook, he loves experimenting with other Asian cuisines and promotes new and old recipes on his website.

Allen, inspired by authentic flavours and amazing travelling memories, continues to source new products to share different parts of the vibrant Asian food culture.

He encourages others’ to try all Asian foods too!
