What began as intimate gatherings over dumplings transformed into multi-course tasting menus, then evolved into 24 Suns: a culinary experience that pops up across San Diego’s diverse locales. Each setting brings its own flavor, challenging us to adapt and refine our craft.


Chefs Nic Webber and Jacob Jordan, both trained in fine dining, are the creators of 24 Suns. They currently host pop-up tasting events in San Diego, where they blend Chinese culinary traditions with local ingredients. Their next step is to open a dedicated 24 Suns brick and mortar.

Chef Nicholas Webber began his career working as an apprentice for a French restaurant at only 15 years old. Inspired by Jacques Pepin’s memoir he set out to work young just the same. He then attended the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, where he found opportunities in Michelin Three Star restaurants. He discovered an obsession with dumpling and a love for Chinese food in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Nicholas proceeded to develop skills in a variety of restaurants, from French, Italian, to Korean, in San Diego and Portland. After coming back home to San Diego, returning to Addison on the Chef’s request to be a part of the Michelin pursuit, he set out on his own, starting 24 Suns Pop Up in September of 2021. 24 Suns expresses the culmination of his experience; it showcases the best of San Diego and Chinese Cuisine. Nicholas continues to use his skills in cooking and organization to advocate for his local community.
