We started Pepper Tree in 2004 on the idea that our Houston neighbors would enjoy wholesome, vegan Asian food. When you step inside, we hope it feels like visiting our home. We cook the same way we like to cook for our children – fresh ingredients, simple recipes, light on salt.

We're long-time vegetarians. Happy – yes, that's really her name! – even lived in a vegetarian co-op in college. Our children each decided when they were kids to eat plant-based diets and are still happy vegetarians to this day.

For our friends who have been with us for the last decade, thank you for all your support. For our new friends, we hope we'll get to know you better!
