Against all odds, Azalina Eusope, a fifth-generation street food vendor, moved to San Francisco 16 years ago. Abandoned by her mother as a child and facing the realities of the caste system in Malaysia, she saw no opportunity for herself.

Fast forward to today and Azalina is running bustling restaurants in the Bay Area, serving up food that is symbolic of her journey. Watch the latest episode of our "Unpacked" video series to see her story, and also hear from acclaimed food writer Francis Lam, who says “I think it's impossible to miss what a special person she is; She radiates energy, she has such incredible passion for what she does and where she came from.”
