ASIAN AMERICANS ADVANCING JUSTICE - ATLANTA PRESENTS : SouthEATS

AN ASIAN FOOD FESTIVAL FEATURING TOP ATLANTA CHEFS IN CELEBRATION OF ASIAN HERITAGE MONTH


NORCROSS, GA , April 28, 2016 — Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Atlanta presents SouthEATS 2016, its second Asian food festival featuring top Atlanta chefs and restaurants on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, from 6-9pm at local craft brewery Monday Night Brewing, in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Advancing Justice - Atlanta is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the civil, social and economic rights of Asian-Americans through public policy, legal services, and civic engagement.

SouthEATS is an Asian food festival that brings together an amazing collection of Asian restaurants and top chefs, curated by We Love Buhi's founder and Advancing Justice - Atlanta board member, Marian Liou. The following restaurants are confirmed for the event: Ama (Chef Nhan Le), Ah-Ma's Taiwanese Kitchen, Bayou Boil, Brush Sushi Izakaya, Chateau Saigon, Gaja, Himalayas, Makan, Mamak Malaysian Kitchen, Nexto (Chef Mihoko Obunai), Sweet Auburn BBQ, and Sweet Hut Bakery and Cafe.

"We’re thrilled to showcase the phenomenal talent and entrepreneurial drive of Atlanta’s Asian-American chefs and restaurateurs, many of whom are immigrants or the children of immigrants, and their vital and innovative contributions to Atlanta’s culinary and economic scene,” said Marian Liou.

"Our first Asian food festival was hugely successful last year, and we look forward to celebrating Asian American Heritage Month with an even more impressive lineup of restaurants on May 25. This year, our event will be inclusive of the many diverse cultures that fall under the umbrella of Asian American Pacific Islander, featuring several vegetarian options and at least one halal option. We look forward to celebrating the vibrant and growing Asian American population in Atlanta while raising funds for our organization, which is on the front lines fighting for social justice action for Asian immigrants and refugees in Georgia." said Stephanie Cho, Interim Executive Director of Advancing Justice - Atlanta.

Tickets to SouthEATS are $40 before May 6 and $50 thereafter. All proceeds from the event will benefit Asian American Advancing Justice - Atlanta.
