May is Asian American + Pacific Islander Heritage Month, so we wanted to highlight some local AAPI-owned businesses you should check out. Here are five to choose from:

1. Kamado Ramen

If ramen isn’t your thing, go for the pork bun + dumplings. There’s nothing like an appetizer sampler. (Emily Phillips / Hville Blast)

Kamado Ramen was one of the first tenants at Stovehouse, and now they’ve got a location at MidCity as well. There, you’ll find deliciously fresh ramen + apps that will keep you coming back for more.



2. I Love Sushi

Do you ❤️ sushi? This local favorite now has three locations around town, including the brand new I Love Sushi Express that just opened in Town Madison. I’m (selfishly!) glad to have one so close to me now.

If downtown patio dining sounds like your kind of thing, you should try Big Oh’s. The Korean fusion restaurant promises great ambiance and even better eats. If I was ordering off the menu, I’d definitely go for the summer rolls.

4. Viet Cuisine

Head to Viet Cuisine for Vietnamese food that hits the spot. Their menu includes everything from Vietnamese sandwiches and clay pot dishes to vegetarian options and, of course, fried rice.

5. Thai Garden

If you’re looking for great Thai food in Five Points, look no further than Thai Garden. There, you’ll find delicious curry dishes, soups, wok-fried dishes and charbroiled Thai-style meats.
