A multi-sensory dining experience exploring Asian American identity through food and drink, VR, and poetry. The project explores the trials and triumphs of Asian American identity, addressing topics including cultural hierarchies in the food industry, the lack of individualism granted to minorities, and internalization of the “white savior” complex.

Join us for a special pop-up dinner on Saturday, May 4th at the Toshizo Watanabe Exhibition Center @ JACCC from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm!

This pop-up dinner features six courses and three cocktails presented alongside written poetry and VR films. The ingredients, cooking techniques, and alternating presentations of art take guests on a journey through the trials and triumphs of the Asian American identity.
