Sam Burke

Jun 01, 2022

Our Asianati team closed out May's AAPI Heritage Month with a very special šŸ”„ fiery šŸ”„ edition of Asianati Eats: Hot Ones-Style!

Our Social Media Manager, Sam Burke, chatted with Cincinnati Mayor, Aftab Pureval, in the style of the very popular Youtube series by First We Feast, "Hot Ones" which interviews celebrities while they eat extremely hot chicken wings.


Instead of hot sauced wings though, Sam & Mayor Aftab ate progressively spicy Indian cuisine and discussed hot topics from his experience growing up Asian American in the Midwest to his sneaker collection favorites & custom Super Bowl fit.


Check out the video here:

We ordered our lunch menu from Krishna Indian Restaurant and Carryout, in Clifton, which is a long-time favorite of Mayor Aftab's since his law school days!


This Episode's Menu: Chicken Pakoras (No Spice) Veggie Samosas (No Spice) Dal Makhani (Level 1) Chicken Choley (Level 1) Saag Paneer (Level 2) Fish Masala (Level 2) Lamb Curry (Level 3) Chicken Tikka Masala (Level 5) Chicken Vindaloo (As Spicy as Possible!)
