Restaurants Are Struggling

One of our favorite ways to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and support small businesses is through food. Restaurants across the country are struggling, but Chinese restaurants are closing at double the rate of others. The Asian American community is being signed out during the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s simply wrong.

The Edwin M. Lee Asian Pacific Democratic Club has created a running list of some of our favorite Asian restaurants in San Francisco that are open for take out or delivery. Go support all restaurants, but especially Asian restaurants.

Check out our map for some of our favorite places to grab some delicious comfort food. We hope you will support small businesses offering take out and that the food will bring joy to your family.

Asian restaurants are closing at nearly 2X the rate of others. That's some racist BS! Let’s #TakeOutHate by ordering takeout! Your mission is simple: order some juicyass dumplings tonight, take a pic of those bad boys, then show it off to the Internet with #TakeOutHate. Don’t forget to give your Asian joints some love by tagging the restaurant, friends, family, your ex, your ex’s mom, whatever. This one’s for you @newmooneats and your delicious sweet and spicy chicken. Learn more at the link in my bio. #AjinomotoPartner
