The Story...

Evelyn Garcia was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Her interest in the culinary field began at a young age. As the eldest of three siblings, she would cook for her younger brother and sister while her parents worked. During her senior year in high school, she joined the school district Culinary Academy, where she excelled.

After graduation, Garcia traveled to New York and attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. During her time at the CIA, Garcia had the opportunity to travel and stage throughout Asia. During this trip she finally understood what her culinary aspiration entailed. Garcia graduated from the CIA in 2010 with a Bachelors degree.

Garcia got her first line cook job at Spice Market by Jean Georges; emphasizing on South East Asian cuisine, she fully indulged in everything Spice Market had to offer, while working under Chef Anthony Ricco.

After leaving Spice Market in 2011, Garcia traveled to India for some time. Once back in New York City, Garcia took a job at Masak, Singaporean focused restaurant with Chef Larry Reutens. After working at Masak for over a year, Garcia, felt it was her time and pursued a sous chef position.

GO EVELYN! 🔪🔥 By KIN HTX We'll be following your journey on Top Chef Houston starting tonight at 7 pm Check out why this was the perfect time for her to be on Bravo's 'Top Chef'
Come out to #ricevillage. Farmers Market and try this amazaing Street Corn at Kin by Chef Evelyn #streetcorn #deliciousfood #amazing
Tenfold Coffee Company opened in the midst of the pandemic, and they're celebrating their one year anniversary today. Their celebration includes a bake sale by Christina Au, whole hog cookout by Khói Barbecue, and dishes utilizing Khói's bbq pork made by Calenda's Pizza, Kin by Chef Evelyn, and Tatemó. It's hot AF, and we know what it's like to do pop-ups. You go hungry to ensure your customers don't. So we did a banh mi drop off for the baristas and vendors at Tenfold today. We hit up Don Cafe and purchased classic bbq pork banh mi (Diane Wu Feng's go-to) and combination special banh mi (Willet Feng's go-to) for the staff to nosh on once they get a chance to eat. This banh mi drop off was sponsored by Christina Au. She wouldn't accept payment, so we used the funds allocated as payment for her banana cream poptarts to buy these banh mi. If she won't accept payment, hopefully she'll accept good karma and thanks from all the vendors who are grinding to ensure Tenfold Coffee has a poppin' one-year anny. Love y'all.
Industry folks can rarely attend pop-ups and events because they're...working. So we wanted to bring the pop-up goods to them! Yesterday we delivered 60 of Christina Au's world-famous poptarts to f&b folks at Kickin' Kombucha/Cochinita & co., Street to Kitchen, Johnny's Gold Brick, Henderson & Kane General Store, Nobie's, and Baileson Brewing Company. Shout out to Christina for donating (y'all, she won't accept funds as payment--so SOME HOW we'll get her back!!) and baking these industry-exclusive poptarts. She really embodies the Food is Love spirit, and we love her for it. She'll be popping up at Tenfold Coffee Company next Sunday, 6/20, from 1pm until sell out. Her super-stuffed poptarts, decadent candy bars, and other assorted pastries will be available for purchase. (Bring your pocket book, because Tatemó, Khói Barbecue, Kin by Chef Evelyn, Calenda's Pizza, and Underground Creamery will also be there.) Houstonians, please do us a favor and sell her out next weekend. Christina Au's IG page: https://www.instagram.com/christinaau/

We first met chef Victoria Elizondo of Cochinita & co. three years ago at Decatur. At that time, she was in the kitchen with Chef Evelyn Garcia during Kin by Chef Evelyn's residency. We often saw Victoria and Evelyn together at events and such, so we thought of them as partners in crime. If you saw one, you were expecting to see the other. After both chefs opened their own spots in the Politan Row food hall in Rice Village, we got a chance to try Chef Victoria’s food. She cooks Mexican food that’s sophisticated but not fussy. The flavors hit you unexpectedly, and you can tell she cares about the ingredients she sources. After Politan closed due to COVID, we were curious to see where Chef Victoria would land next. When she started popping up at various markets and shops with her tamales, we knew we had to track her down and try them. Her tamales are so good. With the pork tamales, you can taste the pork fat—and we mean that in a good way. There was a depth of flavor in the pork and veggie tamales—and the accompanying salsas—that hit us unexpectedly because a tamale is so unassuming. From the outside, all tamales look pretty similar. But Victoria’s tamales—and perhaps she’ll want to give due credit to her mother—are tamales to remember and to tell your friends about. On the horizon, Chef Victoria has a food truck called Cochi’s Taqueria (https://www.papercitymag.com/restaurants/cochis-taqueria-heights-houston-food-truck-mexican-restaurant-victoria-elizondo/) coming soon to I-10 and Shepherd. She also claims to have other exciting developments in the pipeline, and we’ll wait for her to reveal what those are. Below are where you can find Victoria’s market products: *Asch Building *Henderson & Kane General Store *Heights Mercantile Farmers Market *Kickin' Kombucha *M-K-T Sunset Market Rice Village Farmers Market Whitehurst Heritage Farms *Various Markets hosted by The Feel Good Group
Willet Feng ordering some food from Kin by Chef Evelyn.
Right after we closed burger-chan due to the pandemic, we suddenly had free time to pursue fun projects. One idea we’d been floating around for a while was to do a blind taste test challenge a la Top Chef. The thought was, given all the craziness and stress swirling about, we might as well have some fun and give people something to cheer for and enjoy from the comforts of their living room. So in September of 2020, Conor Moran of Cost of Goods Told podcast and I each made a list of fun ingredients, and then we merged them together. We asked Evelyn Garcia of Kin by Chef Evelyn and Sarah Troxell of Nobie's and The Toasted Coconut to join Willet Feng for this challenge—and they agreed! #emojibaby had started virtual kindergarten by that point, so we enlisted the help of Vinita Chen to buy the ingredients and help Conor film the segment. Conor and his media production team at on3media (https://www.on3media.co/) did a fabulous job editing this video, and we hope you enjoy watching it! Link to full YouTube video is here: https://youtu.be/kf6iVItro88 2020 was a crazy year, and we’re still recovering from it and trying to move forward. Times will continue to be tough for a while, so little projects like this that make us laugh and lift our spirits—they’re the ones worth doing.
This farmer was hungry while selling at the farmers market and Chef Evelyn Garcia brought me a wonderful treat of chicken curry and vegetables. Great food. Many thanks. Saturday at the Urban Harvest Farmers Market.
