Cooking and chatting with award-winning chef, Michael Mina

Chef Mina tells us all about the concept behind his new restaurant in Houston

HOUSTON - Michael Mina is an award-winning chef who has a lot of love for Houston.

Chef Mina owns over 40 restaurants worldwide, and he just opened one right here in H-town.

His Houston restaurant, International Smoke, was an idea that he came up with alongside his good friend, actress/author Ayesha Curry.

"International Smoke is something that is really near and dear to both of our hearts. The name says it all - it's global barbecue. Everyone has their own interpretation of barbecue. So the menu is about 10% American barbecue, but we really focus on flavors from all around the world," Chef Mina said.

At International Smoke they also serve Ayesha's favorite side dish.

"This is her famous cornbread - it's a Curry cornbread," Chef Mina said. 

International Smoke is now open in Houston and to see the menu just visit their website InternationalSmoke.com
