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.”

Sushi served at lo­cal Ja­pa­nese restau­rants should be pop­u­lar with crowds at­tend­ing the first Feast Asian Din­ing Fes­ti­val. Foods from China, Korea and even Afghanistan will be fea­tured.
