After Houston Rockets fans decided to try to sabotage Ayesha Curry’s barbecue restaurant before it even opens, Steph Curry did what any honorable husband would do. He defended his wife with a sweet message praising her food on June 21.
“Hey @ayeshacurry. Guess I’ll have @EatAtSmoke in Houston 2 Myself twice next year,” the NBA superstar tweeted, a clear jab at the next time his team will be playing against the Rockets. Several bitter fans took the sadness of the Rockets losing to the Golden State Warriors in this year’s Western Conference finals to heart. They proclaimed they would not step foot in the Food Network show host’s eatery, International Smoke, some of them even leaving negative reviews on the page prior to its grand opening.
Hey @ayeshacurry. Guess I’ll have @EatAtSmoke in Houston 2 Myself twice next year 🤷🏽♂️. More Ribs and Shellfish and Burratta and Duck Wings And Instant Bacon And Salmon And Brussels Sprouts and fried Rice and Mac&Cheese and Cornbread and (did I say Ribs) for me! #5StarReview

The Houston location will be the third restaurant for Mrs. Curry. Like always Steph and Ayesha are in one another’s corners. The couple is awaiting the arrival of their third child who is due any day now.
