The Asian Art Museum is hosting their first Pan-Asian and Asian American food festival at the museum, expanding on the nighttime museum experience except, this time, the galleries won’t be open and the focus will be on the culinary arts. The Hawker Centre Festival, coming our way on July 19th, features a dozen chefs from around the Bay Area coming together to create a “Night Market” with all you can eat food options, cocktail menu, and live music curated by local chef Tu David Phu.
