Sawadee ka! Hi! My name is Chef Nikky Phinyawatana. I am a restaurateur (I own and run 4 restaurants in Dallas), cookbook author, mother of 2, wife, daughter, girlfriend and entrepreneur.

My philosophy is that food must feed your soul as well as your body and must be super yummy! For me, most of the time that means Asian comfort food. I love Asian cuisine because it is a sensory experience through textures, flavors and colors. And it is incredibly well-balanced in nutrition and taste. I want to inspire you to love life through food, culture and travel. My hope is that you will taste the culture and history of Thailand in every bite of food that you take and truly experience how food can feed your soul and nourish your body.
