Choukroun says he enjoys fusing different cuisines together, while drawing inspiration from his father's North African roots. For the last five years, he has owned a restaurant in France called MBC.

"I wanted a very urban restaurant. The walls are fully covered by graffiti, created by some of my closest friends who are graffiti artists. I wanted a restaurant in agreement with myself and the uniqueness of my work, a uniqueness I look forward to sharing with the rest of the world."
