Month-long Asian Dining Festival starting in Richmond soon


The countdown is on to FEAST: Asian Dining Festival, which is the multi-week celebration centred in Richmond that has Asian restaurants offering specially-priced group menus.

Now comes the exciting news that FEAST also has its very own signature brew. The beer, the aptly named FEAST, is the West Abby Lite Lager made by Old Abbey Ales out of Abbotsford.

The brew comes in a special-edition FEAST can, and was chosen for its versatility in pairing with Asian food.

“Our West Abby Lite Lager is the feature beer of FEAST and suitable for a wide range of palate and food pairings,” says Old Abbey Ales CEO Sonny Li.

That’s terrific news, because FEAST will encompass a broad range of flavours when it’s on from October 18 through November 18.

Restaurants will span the realm of Asian dining, including restaurants specializing in Cantonese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Shanghainese, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese cuisines, for example.

Wondering just where you can go to find these special FEAST menus for four to ten guests, featuring signature dishes, specialty items, and recommended eats, all at special FEAST festival pricing? Here’s which restaurants are on board – more will be announced before the event gets underway.
