TASTE OF CHINATOWN-APRIL 21, 2007
This event was created as part of the Explore Chinatown Campaign (www.explorechinatown.com). Taste of Chinatown offers both $1 and $2 sampling plates from participating restaurants. Different cuisines include Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, Singaporean, Thai, Japanese, Asian Fusion, & more.
This year, the event will also be offering different types of cultural entertainment, such a lion dancing and Japanese Taiko drum playing. There will also be a fortune cookie writing contest.
Please keep in mind that most of these restaurants do not make a profit off of giving their tastes. This is a promotional event for the Chinatown community, so please keep in mind that the same customer etiquette pertains to this tasting event as any other day.
Although CICF does not participate in the Taste of Chinatown, we do consider it to be one of the greatest events of the year. It exposes people to what our community is about and it helps bring in interest and tourism to Chinatown.
Many thanks to all the people who have worked on Taste of Chinatown! =)
