Hey, y’all. Things have been hectic lately. We’ve been busy with getting everything ready for the grand opening of the new Asian Mint location in Richardson. In case you missed it, we’re set to open our doors by end of September at 300 W. Campbell, where our old EnjoyMint store used to be. My team and I are working so hard to make everything perfect for that day, and we’re super excited to bring our fun and fresh Asian Mint flavor to Richardson.
What makes me even more excited is the buzz this new opening is making. Many of our media friends have already covered it, and one of the most recent write-ups is by Alex Gonzalez of Local Profile. He and I had a chat a while ago about Asian Mint’s upcoming Richardson launch, as well as a few other things.
I’m taking this opportunity to say “thank you” to Alex for coming down to Asian Mint and having lunch with me. It was fun!
So, what did Alex write about me?
What did Alex and I talk about that landed in his write-up? Well, lots of things. Top of the list is, of course, the Asian Mint opening in Richardson.
Our conversation also touched upon how I got into the restaurant business and why. Naturally, that got us talking about my philosophy with regards food, and how I apply this philosophy of feeding souls with every single dish we serve at Asian Mint.
