Nikky Phinyawatana: Celebrity Chef
Updated: Feb 23, 2020
So, who loves food? Um, yeah - I do!
I love global cuisine and a few weekends ago, I had a chance to meet, dine and preview the highly popular Dallas restaurant: Asian Mint
So, you might be wondering... why I'm writing about Nikki; the creator of the amazing and super tasty restaurant Asian Mint instead of highlighting the amazing food in her restaurant first right? Well, so what had happened was....after I discovered how awesome and inspirational she is after reading all about her, I just had to share about who Nikki is first, before talking about the yummy party in my tummy!
So, Nikki is not only a celebrity chef, she also:
Has her own YouTube channel that inspires global cuisine adventures!
She partners up with local non-profits like The Source of Hope to help a percentage of proceeds help the people of Dallas!
She just made it on the cover of a magazine!
I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Grand Opening of Asian Mint in Richardson and let me just tell you, that food was DE-LIC-IOUS! Her restaurants are award-winning and was awarded Dallas Eater's #1 Best Thai Food and Culture Map's Top 100 Restaurants. Asian Mint has received many recognitions from local and national magazines and food critiques like Zagat and USA Today. I know, pretty impressive right! Chef Nikky is also a recipient of The Women That SoarAward for "Business Award 2017".
"When you have the opportunity to get up every day and live out your passion, it is the greatest feeling. I hope I am able to encourage and inspire other entrepreneurs to live out their dreams and then invest their time and money back into the communities that support them" ~ Nikky Phinyawatana
