About the Chef
Yang was a successful doctor and cancer medical researcher when, in 2015, she decided to take a break from medicine to indulge her passion for country-style, organic Chinese food. The first Pepper Twins restaurant, with its authentic Sichuanese dishes, was an instant hit. There are currently four Pepper Twins restaurants in the Houston area.
