Mark your calendars – Chinatown Dining Week will be returning in January for a third time!
What: Chinatown Dining Week
When: January 9-19, 2020
Where: 16 businesses in Edmonton’s Chinatown
Even more exciting, we’ve doubled our participating businesses from last year, with 9 new establishments joining us for a total of 16! As in the past, Chinatown Dining Week will highlight some of the diverse cuisines available in the neighbourhood – including regional Chinese specialties, Filipino, Indian, and Thai.
In addition to businesses located in commercial Chinatown clustered around 97 Street, we’ve also added two restaurants situated in so-called “Chinatown South”, or the area just east of Canada Place. Those who attended our summer walking tours in previous years will know that Edmonton actually boasts two Chinatowns, and though the Quarters is now largely home to cultural and family associations, some retail and hospitality hidden gems remain.
Participating restaurants have put together special $18 fixed price dinner menus that will be offered after 5pm from January 9 – 19, 2020. Each menu will feature two courses. Participating restaurants include (*denotes new participant):
- *All Happy Family, 10013 106 Avenue
- Asian Express Hot Pot, 10586 100 Street

This year, we’ve also added a new category that now enables Chinatown Dining Week to feature other types of businesses that may not focus on the sit-down experience.
