24 restaurants on the menu for first Asian dining festival
A total of 24 Metro Vancouver restaurants are taking part in the region’s first Asian dining festival.
The inaugural Feast Asian Dining Festival features Chinese restaurants that serve Cantonese, Shanghainese, Taiwanese and Sichuan cuisines.
It also shines a spotlight on restaurants serving the cuisine of Afghanistan, Korea, Japan, and Punjab from north India.
Participating restaurants will feature signature menu items during the festival, which continues until Sunday, Oct. 21.
“After a year and a half of planning, we’re hungry for the arrival of Feast,” Alvin Chow, a festival organizer, said in a news release.
“Feast is more than a foodtasting experience. It’s also an opportunity to learn, appreciate and celebrate the diverse culinary arts from these Asian countries.”
