Hey, Mint Fanatics! If you’ve been following us on social media, then you’d know that we’ve been busy, busy, busy. We’ve done a lot of stuff that caught the attention of our media friends. Best of all, we’ve got a lot more coming up. Here’s your latest roundup of Asian Mint in the news.
Asian Mint Inwood Village and Richardson dining rooms reopening
The Covid-19 pandemic has definitely put a mark on the Dallas dining scene. We are sad to see a number of restaurants in the area closing down. Still, we have a spot of hope. CultureMap Dallas recently published a list of restaurants that have shut their doors, new restaurants that have opened, and established restaurants that are resuming their dining room operations. We thank CultureMap Dallas for including Asian Mint Inwood Village and Richardson in its list of stores reopening.
Community Impact also picked up on Asian Mint Richardson reopening this October. We’re so happy and thankful for their coverage.
Socially distanced foodie events
Another thing that the coronavirus pandemic forced us to rethink about doing is face-to-face foodie events. So, no more crowd-drawing cooking classes, foodie festivals, and the like for the meantime. Even so, when there’s a will, there’s certainly a way to get foodies together to engage on their favorite topic.
So, instead of meeting her Mint Fanatics face-to-face, Chef Nikky took her foodie events to Zoom. These virtual events also landed Asian Mint in the news.
- PeopleNewspapers covered Chef Nikky’s Ultimate Thai Brunch Zoom cooking class on September 12, which featured her bacon fried rice, Thai fried egg, and larb chicken. The article also mentioned Drama Queen Chili, which is now available on Amazon.
- Dallas Observer reported on the Chef-ardy event that Chef Nikky hosted on behalf of FestEvents Foundation. The article also mentioned the Piehole Project, another FestEvents Foundation fundraiser, and to which Chef Nikky contributed a blackberry candied ginger pie.
- North Texas e-News posted an article on Dallas College Culinary, Pastry, and Hospitality’s (CPH) annual Bits and Bites event on October 25. To observe social distancing, this year’s event is designed as a drive-through along a designated route across the CPH Center parking lot. Without leaving their vehicles, guests will receive specially curated goodies in small-plates portions from the event’s participating restaurants. Asian Mint is one of the restaurants joining the event.
That’s your latest Asian Mint in the news roundup, Mint Fanatics. Stay safe and see you at Inwood Village and Richardson soon!
