The New York Times has called Richmond a “one-stop paradise for lovers of Asian food.”
With a superb collection of Asian restaurants here, it can be overwhelming to decide where to eat, but Feast Asian Dining Festival will help you with that.
The new festival — co-produced by the owners of the Richmond News, Glacier Media, and Hamazaki Wong Marketing Group — will feature dozens of Asian restaurants, mostly in Richmond, that will provide guided dining adventures to customers from Oct. 10 – 21.
“We see the festival as a way to leverage one of our cultural assets here in Richmond, which is known for having some of the best Asian food across all of North America,” said Sonny Wong, co-producer of the festival and creative director at Hamazaki Wong Marketing Group.
“We want to celebrate Asian food restaurants and bring them to a wider audience.
“We really believe Asian food deserves a much higher profile than it has right now.”
Wong was echoed by Alvin Chow, co-producer of the festival and publisher of the News, who believes the event will “educate Metro Vancouver about Asian dining.
“We don’t want people going to Chinese restaurants, for example, just to order fried rice or sweet and sour pork,” said Chow.
Similar to other dining festival experiences, restaurant participants at Feast Asian Dining Festival will offer a set of signature dishes at promotional prices during the festival.
