The story of G&F began with a sincere love of food and a burning passion to share it with friends. The owner, Mary Li, has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Within those years, Mary has had the privilege of meeting many friends while gaining prominent rapport among the Houston dining industry. Having taken many friends to go eat authentic Chinese food that are outside of the main Houston area, Mary slowly saw a void within the Houston dining experience that begged to be filled.
Among the delicious selection of restaurants available in one of the nation’s top food cities, it is our goal to acquaint Houston with food that will capture the authenticity of Chinese cuisine, predominantly influenced by Hong Kong and the Canton province. With the help of many qualified professionals, Ginger & Fork will give customers a genuine taste of the Chinese culture without lacking originality.
The second half of G&F’s concept emphasizes the distinctiveness of the restaurant using Mary’s key expertise and experience. After taking many of her friends to eat delicious food in Chinatown, the most common feedback that Mary received was that “it would be nice to enjoy this delicious Chinese food with a good drink.” Taking this into consideration, Mary has traveled to the best bars around the world in order to learn how to create the most exceptional cocktails so that Ginger & Fork patrons will be able to enjoy delicious Chinese food with more-than-just-good drinks.
Ginger & Fork will offer gracious hospitality and service, high quality food, and exotic drinks in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Mary’s vision for Ginger & Fork is to create a place where she and all of her customers can reconnect with old friends, as well as form new friendships.
