Although she's been affectionately dubbed "The Blind Cook," Christine Ha could easily be known by many other titles, including "MasterChef Season 3 Winner." The legally blind chef isn't only immensely talented and humble, she's also one the busier chefs associated with our local dining scene. Apart from writing for TV Guide, studying for grad school exams and promoting her cookbook Recipes from My Home Kitchen, she's also busy keeping us in suspense about prospective restaurant plans. Through all of that, Ha's work seems to have remained true to Houston and to her talent, as evidenced by Ha's recent pop-up at MKT Bar, which saw a packed house and sold-out offerings. The beloved local chef has even found time to tell Eater about her favorite local haunts. In this Eater map Ha tells us where she takes out-of-town guests when they want a taste of good local food, and why these five places are her top picks. Smaller, out-of-the way and mostly mom-and-pop restaurants, Ha's picks reflect her image as the down-to-earth chef who values taste and quality.
