DFW’s first-ever Asian Restaurant Week has arrived, and it’s essentially a treasure hunt that involves eating a whole lot of dumplings.

Starting on Monday, nearly 20 restaurants in Dallas and beyond are now serving special menus that range in price from $5 at tea and dessert shops to $35 for a full service dinner. In addition to beloved spots like Kirin Court, Royal Sichuan, and Jeng Chi Restaurant and Bakery, newcomers like Ikigai Udon and Oolong Tea & Desserts are also participating in the inaugural event.

And don’t expect the typically stingy, boring tasting menus that are generally associated with these kinds of promos. At Champion Gourmet, diners can start out with snow ice and takoyaki, order a few milk teas, and snack on marinated meats all for $15. The $35 prix-fixe option at Jeng Chi offers four courses, including the restaurant’s famous steamed juicy dumplings and crispy fish in garlic sauce.

As far as the “treasure hunt” is concerned, each participating restaurant will have a paper map at the front. Adventurous diners who visit all 17 restaurants and get a stamp from each can win prizes, including a fancy new iPhone X to go along with their newfound sense of culinary superiority.

Asian Restaurant Week runs through October 15. See below for a full list of participating restaurants, and check out The Asian Magazine’s website for all the menus.
