East Meets Arkansas.

Posted By on Tue, Jun 23, 2009 at 10:39 AM


Asian food.  It's not just Chinese egg rolls or Japanese sushi.  It's the peanuty goodness of Pad Thai, the spicy tang of Indian Chicken Vindaloo, the comfort of Vietnamese Bun Cha.  Many of these delicacies aren't available commercially around here, so any time I can get a chance to enjoy them I rush at it.

Of course, experiencing bits of the cultures behind the food just makes it easier to savor, at least for me.  That's why I rather enjoy the Asian Festival.  It's not huge (yet, but it's getting there), but it is a great chance to sample some good food.  It's also a good chance for all sorts of demonstrations of martial arts, beautiful pieces of art, and shopping for exotic and ethnic items.

The event will be held this Saturday from 10am to 6pm at the Mosaic Church on Colonel Glenn Road (the former Wal-Mart location next to Kroger).  It's $3 admission for adults -- free for kids, senior citizens, and members of the military.  For those that come before 11am, it's a buck.  For more information, contact the Asian Pacific Resource and Cultural Center at (501) 244-2490.
