In my other life I’m Nina Chanthachone, a successful resturantuer in
northwest Houston for the last 8 plus years as the owner of Tenshi Sushi
on Jones Road at Fallbrook. I love all food and cooking will never be
far from my heart (or my blog) but Nina in the Burbs is my chance to
accomplish my personal goals of teaching, motivating and inspiring
people beyond the four walls of Tenshi and sharing my unique view of the
‘burbs with my family and friends, both old and new.
I’ve lived in the US since I was five but I was born in the tiny Asian
country of Laos and the culture of my homeland and the two year journey
my parents endured to get to this country will always shape me and
inspire my view of the world. It certainly helps my to stay grounded and
not take Houston and the life we have out in the ‘burbs for granted! I
also love fashion and design and I’m very fortunate to share a love of
sewing with my mom and we make fine, fashionable handmade clothing that
we sell through our Etsy store; be sure and check it out.
In addition to all things food and fashion, I want to give you a true
suburbanite’s perspective on those things in and around Houston that we
always seem to plan on checking out but never seem to make time for or
miss altogether. I’m going to knock some of these items off of my own
personal Houston must-see list and let you know if it’s worth your time
and what you should do once you get there.
I will strive to bring you information that encompasses all of these
areas and more but I won’t be doing it alone. I’ve created a number of
general interest topics that I want to share my views on and learn more
about and I look forward to collaborating both formally and informally
with my family, friends and customers in bringing you some great
I also Co-Host a Radio Show on Asian Voice Radio every Sundays from 6-7. I scout out interesting people that will give my audience information and tips that can possibly help them better understand things better. Please tune into that.
Thanks for checking in,
