Chinatown Dining Week returns for its fifth year!
What: Chinatown Dining Week
When: January 13-23, 2022
Where: Businesses in Edmonton’s Chinatown
In January 2021, restaurants were limited to take-out and delivery methods only, and as a result, our event had to pivot too. But the community came through, and participating Chinatown Dining Week businesses were overwhelmed with Edmontonians who placed take-out orders in droves. It was our most successful event to date.
Twenty one months after the pandemic changed everything, most businesses in Chinatown continue to struggle. While restaurants were permitted to re-open to dine-in services earlier this year with the implementation of the Restrictions Exemption Program, many establishments have not seen their foot traffic return to pre-pandemic levels.
Chinatown Dining Week started five years ago as a volunteer-run event meant to highlight some of the culinary gems in an overlooked neighbourhood of the city. The need still stands, perhaps now more than ever, to showcase these unique hospitality businesses at a time when they could use more support.
Participating restaurants have put together special menus for $10 or $18 that will be offered from January 13-23, 2022 for take-out and in-person dining.
The list of participating restaurants will be released on December 27, 2021, and includes several businesses new to the event, as well as many returning favourites.
