There’s no way one food fest ought to constitute all of the food traditions of Asia. But Cincinnati’s Asian Food Fest has a shocking reach. Drawing on neighborhood Asian eating places, food trucks, church agencies, and caterers, the occasion capabilities food from all around the continent of Asia. There can be booths serving Chinese food, of the route, in conjunction with Thai, Nepali, Indian, Vietnamese, Japanese, Hawaiian, Filipino, Cambodian, Malaysian and Korean, no longer to say some fusions of 1 or more cuisines.
Many of the food vendors have participated before, but approximately a 3rd is new. So is the location this 12 months: The Banks, on Freedom Way between Elm and Walnut.
My recommendation on how nice to revel in Asian Food Fest? Simple. Try something you have in no way had before. I suppose I could try the bird and ube waffle skewers from Dai Trang, or the Cambodian candy potato pork spring roll that Sam Kruesah is serving crowned off with a number of Lan Thang group’s nitro Vietnamese lemonade.
There are plenty of top versions of greater acquainted dishes, too, from Bibimbap to egg rolls to fried rice and green curry. So meals lovers of all stages of revel in will discover something to try.
And there is leisure, too, on ranges, one for DJs, the other offering cultural and people acts. From 6:30-10 p.M. On Saturday, “Asian Food Fest Unplugged” features acoustic acts from nearby Asian performers.
