About Our Family, Heritage & New Business

Created in hopes of uniting people through culinary delights.

Our Story

From The Founders

With roots grounded in the Eurasian culture of Kazakhstan, Nurzhamal (Jama) and Yerzhan Karymsakov brought Veranda into existence in the hopes of uniting people through culinary delights. A family of avid travelers used to relocations in the oil patch, they tried to find culinary delights familiar to them in the various places they lived around the world.

While in search of the Russian staple food in Houston, the Karymsakovs had the idea of creating something of their own for sharing with friends and community. Hence, the Veranda was born – having the laidback, friendly and fresh meaning in its core.

The passion for food from home allowed Yerzhan and Jama to draw from their experiences around the world to craft a heritage-inspired menu with something for everyone. The diverse menu offers a recognizable comfort food with opportunities for many flavorful adventures.

Traditional Eurasian and Slavic treats like Borsch, an array of delectable salads, as well as Jama’s signature Kazakh ‘Baursaki’ – very much like New Orleans beignets – feed the body and soul.

Jama’s Kitchen, a branch of Veranda, specializes in fulfilling your catering needs, whether it be for a quick and satisfying meal after a busy day or a custom order for your celebrations. Take a look at our new menu then call us for custom event catering.

Providing fresh, affordable, and exquisite cuisine, Veranda is ready to please.
