Last updated on May 15, 2023

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a time to celebrate and honor the contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders to our nation's history, culture, and society. It's a time to reflect on the challenges faced by these communities and to raise awareness about the issues they continue to face today. We're sharing some Asian American and Pacific Islander-owned businesses in DTO that you can add to your dining bucket list. 

DTO is home to many Asian American and Pacific Islander-owned businesses, including Empire Szechuan (341 N Orange Ave), Maki Hibachi (106 E Colonial Dr), Napasorn Thai Restaurant (56 E Pine St 100), Shin Japanese Cuisine (803 N Orange Ave), Takumi Ramen (486 N Orange Ave #8), The Monroe (448 N Terry Ave), Vera Asian (422 N Terry Avenue) and Thai Cafe (217 N Magnolia Ave). These restaurants offer a range of delicious Asian cuisine, from Chinese to Japanese, Thai to Vietnamese. By supporting these local businesses, we can help boost the local economy, create jobs, and show our support for these communities. And best of all, you can grab lunch at one of these spots and the parking is on us with the Park DTO program (restrictions apply).
