Taste Asia is the culmination of a month-and-a-half-long Asian restaurant month, which started in May, the month for Asian Pacific Heritage.  Passersby got to try a wide range of Asian flavors from Malaysian to Korean, to Chinese and Thai.

Taste Asia will continue on Thursday with the spotlight on Chinese cuisine. The top contestants from the categories of Cantonese, Sichuan, Northeastern, Huaiyang, and Shandong will compete for the gold in New Tang Dynasty Television’s 6th annual Chinese culinary competition.
