Wonton & Friends Bite Market

PHILADELPHIA - To celebrate AAPI Heritage Month, The Wonton Project, Restaurateur Ellen Yin’s mission-driven ghost kitchen, will be hosting a few pop-up events this month to raise awareness and support the AAPI community in Philadelphia. Sharing the details below in case it might be a fit for coverage. 

This Friday, May 13 from 4-7 PM, The Wonton Project will pop up at Franklin’s Table, on UPenn’s campus. The menu will feature The Wonton Project’s beloved wontons — rooted in Yin’s mom’s homestyle recipe — including Steamed Pork and Shrimp, Steamed Chicken and Ginger, and Fried Pork and Shrimp Wontons, along with some special menu items.

On Sunday, May 22, The Wonton Project is hosting “Wonton & Friends Bite Market” at Sor Ynez’s outdoor garden space from 4-7 PM to showcase some of Philadelphia AAPI food concepts. Vendors — spanning Kalaya, Tabachoy, Hardena, and more — will be selling and displaying their dish of choice and donating a portion of proceeds to SEAMAAC. The pop-up will also feature complimentary beverages and refreshments to go along with dishes.

The Wonton Project launched in April 2021 following the violence against the Asian community in Atlanta as a part of the nationwide #doughsomething campaign. Yin’s wonton recipe stems from her mother’s original home-style Chinese wonton recipe as a way to celebrate her culture. The Wonton Project benefits organizations locally and nationally that advocate for the civil and human rights of Asian Americans, including  Asian Americans United and Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
