Setrini Sison

Years of Participation

Born in the Philippines, Chef Setrini Sison moved to Charleston with his parents at the age of 9 making the Low Country his home. Shortly after graduating high school, Setrini moved to Chicago and attended College of DuPage to start his culinary career. Sison became sous chef at Mario Batali’s Eataly and continued to grow his experience until finally moving back to Charleston in 2016 to work at Cypress as sous chef under James Beard nominated Chef Craig Deihl.

In 2019, Setrini and his wife Lani decided to branch out and begin his own pop-up restaurant called Bok Choy Boy Asian Fusion. He scheduled his pop-ups all over local breweries in Charleston. At Bok Choy Boy their cuisine is inspired by their heritage, their experiences with various cultures from different cities and the direct reflection of what they like to cook and eat at home.

Opened in October 2021, Bok Choy Boy is now part of Charleston's new Food + Brew hall - Port of Call. Located at the heart of Market Street. Port of Call offers 3 full service bars and plenty of seating at the outside patio and the second floor area. While at Port of Call, Sison, still plans on doing some small pop-ups and taking steps to a brick and mortar.
