Following in the footsteps of the Asian Night Market, Otaku Food Fest made its Houston debut two summers ago. Organized by TanukiGo, a longstanding Japanese street food vendor and food festival feature, Otaku Food Festival returns this weekend to 8th Wonder Brewery
The food market first took place on July 31 and August 1 two years ago at the Vietnamese Community Center. In addition to an array of Asian street vendors, the festival featured a cosplay contest, parade, and Itasha car show. This time around, Otaku is going even bigger.
Beginning noon Saturday, June 19, the Otaku Anime + Food Festival will feature all-day sumo wrestling, voice actors, dance performances, anime vendors, and impeccable Asian street food.
“Food vendors will be serving food from all across Asia, including Filipino food, Japanese street food, Thai street food, Taiwanese boba tea, noodles, baos, Latin food, Vietnamese grilled chicken and eggrolls, and soo much more!”
Entry to the food festival is free and requires no prior RSVP. Visitors are encouraged to carry cash. Otaku Food Festival starts at noon on June 10 going until 10 pm, and runs from noon to 6 pm on Sunday, June 11. This weekend’s festival might go down as the best one yet, you don’t want to miss it!
