Cincinnati’s First Asian Food Week Launches November 2-8

Cincinnati’s inaugural Asian Food Week launches November  2-8, 2020. The campaign celebrates Greater Cincinnati’s diverse range of Asian cuisines with over 20​ ​restaurants participating across southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky​.

Customers can order either a three-course prix fixe meal for $20 or “secret menu” item not  typically offered at the restaurant (price varies). The secret menu special is a nod to the unlisted  menu often found at many Asian restaurants in America that include traditional dishes that may  not conform to mainstream American tastes.

Asian Food Week is produced and sponsored by AACAC (Asian American Cultural Association of Cincinnati), the organization behind Asian Food Fest and Lunar New Year. After Asian Food Fest  was cancelled due to COVID-19, the nonprofit quickly adapted to find a different way to celebrate Greater Cincinnati’s robust and growing Asian food culture. Asian-owned restaurants  have been especially impacted by misinformation related to COVID-19, which increased the nonprofit’s urgency to create a campaign to support Asian restaurants.

Asian Food Week showcases a range of cuisines and foods, including Vietnamese comfort food,  bubble tea, Hawaiian poke​, ​Asian street food, and more.​ ​The initial list of participating restaurants  includes:

1. Baba India Restaurant
2. Banana Leaf Modern Thai
3. Boba Cha
