“A BORN DESIGNER & FOODIE WHO VALUES TRADITIONS AND LIVING EXPERIENCE!”, THIS IS HOW I WOULD DESCRIBE MYSELF IN ONE SENTENCE.  I AM THE THIRD OWNER AND NEPHEW OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF HOUSE OF CHOW.  DESIGN AND COOKING ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT ELEMENTS IN MY LIFE  AND I LIVE TO ENHANCE PEOPLE'S EVERY DAY EXPERIENCE.  MY ABILITY TO PAY ATTENTION TO EVERY DETAIL HELPS TO ELEVATE MY CREATIONS BEYOND EXPECTATION.   

 

I GREW UP IN A FAMILY WITH GREAT SUCCESS IN THE RESTAURANT BUSINESS SINCE THE LATE 70S.  MY PARENTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS ARE ORIGINALLY FROM MAINLAND CHINA AND TAIWAN.  GROWING UP IN A BIG FAMILY MEANT HAVING BIG FAMILY MEALS TO BRING FAMILY MEMBERS TOGETHER. ALL MY AUNTS AND UNCLES WOULD COME HOME FOR A DELICIOUS HOME COOKED MEAL ESPECIALLY PREPARED BY MY GRANDPARENTS.  I CAN STILL REMEMBER SOME OF THE CONVERSATIONS AND LAUGHTER AS WE SAVORED A VARIETY OF DELICIOUS FAMILY RECIPES TOGETHER.

 

AFTER GRADUATING FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, I HAVE HAD A LONG AND SUCCESSFUL CAREER AS AN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER OF NUMEROUS HIGH PROFILE SPORTS PROJECTS. I HAVE NOW DECIDED TO MOVE BACK TO MY HOME TOWN AND TAKE OVER THE FAMILY BUSINESS, HOUSE OF CHOW.  HOUSE OF CHOW HAS BEEN OWNED BY THE SAME FAMILY SINCE 1981 WITH GREAT FOOD AND TRADITIONS SERVED THROUGH MANY GENERATIONS. NOW I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE MY FAMILY'S AUTHENTIC CHINESE RECIPES WITH YOU.

 

AS THE OWNER OF HOUSE OF CHOW, I AM INTRODUCING A MEMORABLE CHINESE FAMILY DINING EXPERIENCE TO THE COLUMBIA COMMUNITY. OUR CULINARY TEAM WILL BE SHARING THE AUTHENTIC DISHES ALONG WITH INTRODUCING NEW INNOVATIVE ONES. COME ENJOY THE TRADITIONAL CHINESE DINING EXPERIENCE WITH A MODERN TWIST!  WE ARE HERE TO PLEASE!

 

LET'S CHOW!!!
