Alongside his different jobs, Eddie also worked at his father's restaurants where he learned cooking techniques from various chefs working on his father's restaurant. With the flow of time, he began working as an expeditor and gained knowledge from his surroundings.
Finally, in December 2009, Eddie opened his restaurant under the name, BaoHaus, a Taiwanese bun shop, following the relocation of his first shop to 238 East 14th Street in the East Village.
From his successful career as a chef, he is successfully known for the success of the cooking fraternity as of now.
