PATRICIA KAOWTHUMRONG • JANUARY 25, 2023 Mile High Asian Food Week—which will take place February 22 to 26—was established by community members to promote and celebrate the city’s vibrant Asian food and beverage scene. Victoria Lam is always happy to see new customers at Tea Street, the three-year-old bubble tea shop she owns with her brother, Patrick. But there’s a major problem for some prospective patrons: the fear of not knowing what to order or how to interpret the menu. Lam hopes Tea Street’s participation in the first Mile High Asian Food Week will change that. “The collaborative event will really encourage people who haven’t tried different Asian cuisines before to jump in, really give them a try,” she says.
