Tao's story

I was born and raised in China and spent most of my life in Western China near the Silk Road. I studied Mathmatics in university and used my skills working in various businesses and in a number of different industries. But I always thought about food because it’s what people love and consume everyday. Life was good in China but I wanted to make a better life for my family. I came to the United States in 2000 with my entire family. I have 1 daughter and 1 son. During the first few years in the United States I worked many different restaurant jobs and saved enough money to open up my first restaurant, TW Burmese Restaurant, where we serve Asian inspired cuisine from Southeast Asia.
