Austin has a thriving food scene, driven by an innovative, entrepreneurial spirit and supported by a community that loves locally sourced, healthy food. Central Texas is home to over 130,000 Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) and makes up 8% of Austin’s residents. We are the fastest growing demographic, doubling about every 10 years.
There is huge diversity within the label APA. In Austin, the largest groups are Indian, Chinese, and Vietnamese but there are folks from all over Asia. Two national Asian food grocers H Mart and 99 Ranch Market opened locations in Austin in 2018 and the quantity, quality and variety of Asian food offerings have exploded.
The Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce created this website as a benefit for our Asian food and beverage members, who get a free listing here. We were especially thinking about those mom and pop shops who serve great authentic food, but don’t have resources to do any marketing online. We hope you enjoy this site and give our member restaurants a try!
