Save the Date: Chinatown Dining Week Returns, January 14-24, 2021

Mark your calendars, Chinatown Dining Week is returning for a fourth year!

What: Chinatown Dining Week

When: January 14-24, 2021

Where: 10 businesses in Edmonton’s Chinatown

It’s been a rough year for hospitality businesses in Chinatown. The economic downturn had already settled in early on in 2020, impacting discretionary dollars spent dining out, but then in March, the COVID-19 pandemic hit. First, establishments in the neighbourhood were stigmatized because of misinformation about where and how the virus was spreading, and a perceived connection to where the virus originated. Secondly, with the lockdown in the spring, restaurants and cafes were limited to take-out only, which severely impacted their bottom line.

With the current restrictions coming at a time that would have been a busy season for restaurants, it’s more important than ever that we raise awareness of some of the culinary gems in an area that is often overlooked in Edmonton.

10 businesses will be participating in the fourth annual Chinatown Dining Week. We’re thrilled to welcome one new partner to our roster: Kim Fat Market. Kim Fat has been a strong community advocate, and we’re happy to showcase some of their menu items in our upcoming event!

Participating restaurants have put together special menus for $10 or $18 that will be offered from January 14 – 24, 2021. Because of current public health guidelines, all menus will be offered for pick-up only. Participating businesses include (*denotes new participant):

Menus will be released next week at edmontonchinatown.ca/menu – check back then for more details!

  1. My wife and I would love to participate but we live in Tewillegar and it would require a 20/25 minute drive home (because we can’t eat in) and I think the quality of the food would suffer. When the restrictions open up and we can eat in, we will be there. I’m sorry that doesn’t help you now.
