About Us

Đèn Cầy translates to 'candle' in Việt. 

Đèn Cầy is a passion project, a nod to Asian snacking culture. The kind involving nondescript alleyways, all times of the day, and good company - a must! 

Elaine Trần, a Bay Area native with roots in Hội An, runs Đèn Cầy based out of Brooklyn, NY. She is constantly scouring both Chinatown and memories to draw inspiration and is, of course, never without a snack :)

*10% of all sales proceeds are donated to Send Chinatown Love (IG @sendchinatownlove), a nonprofit working to get mom & pop restaurants online and on the way to recovery from the devastating impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
