Lena’s Asian Kitchen offers a fresh start to survivors of domestic violence

Houston, Texas– For the women who work at Lena’s Asian Kitchen, it’s much more than just a job – it’s a second chance at a better future.

Lena’s Asian Kitchen is a healthy meal prep service with a full menu of Asian comfort cuisine. But this Houston store does a lot more than just deliver fresh, pre-cooked meals. It also gives hope to survivors of domestic violence.

“I provide jobs for domestic violence survivors, and I’m one of them,” said Chef Lena Le, owner of Lena’s Asian Kitchen. “I feel like a lot of survivors, they feel alone, and that’s why I really want to raise awareness about domestic violence.”

“She gave me the confidence I need to believe in myself,” said Tracey Diehl, who works as a prep cook at Lena’s Asian Kitchen. “I’m getting my life back in order. I’m moving into my own apartment. I’m getting a vehicle.”

“Even if I’m like, ok, maybe I can’t, I just keep going,” said Jewel Miller, who works as a pastry chef. “Lena always supports me and she always tries to encourage me that I can do it, I can do it.”

Chef Lena Le has been cooking for five years, having immigrated to the United States from Vietnam in 2015 and then deciding to attend culinary school. Since then she has worked at prestigious Houston restaurants such as Bluborn and even won a James Beard Award. Earlier this year, she decided to open her own meal prep business and focus on cuisine inspired by her Asian roots.

“Even though I’m Vietnamese, we didn’t just do Vietnamese,” Le said. “We have all kinds of cuisine. We have Korean, Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Indian, Lebanese cuisine. We have all kinds of Asian cuisine.”

For now, Lenal’s Asian Kitchen is taking orders online, but Le says she hopes to open a shop soon. To see the menu, visit lenasasiankitchen.com.
