Damien Moquais

The journey of 26 year old Damien Moquais from his native France to his current position reads like the script from a romantic film. Damien has cooked with a passion since the age of fourteen. It was in Bordeaux where he met his wife Ryoko, a native of Fukuoka, who was also working as a cook. The couple decided to move to Fukuoka to raise a family. Now, Damien is the Chef at Deux Mille Cinq, a recently opened fine French cuisine restaurant on Nishi-dori. Despite his young age, Damien brings a wealth of experience and flair to his cooking. His fusion recipes draw on France’s rich culinary history, and his cooking is very creative. Xavier, an old colleague, is also in the kitchen – another reason to drop by and taste some truly delicious French cooking. Tel: 092-718-1717
