“I’m a scorpion by [astrological] sign: October 30, 1979, but the reason I got my scorpion tattoos is because I’m an extremist. I’m very extreme at one point. And at times, I’m very, very fragile and sweet. I’m your best friend, you know? My creations, my works of art are so gentle. It takes a lot of time and effort.”


Raphael Abrahante is a chef at Thalassa.
