Tin Drum Asiacafé is celebrating 10 years of fresh and diverse Asian street food this October with its “Be the Beat of the Street” contest featuring Mike Rizzi, drummer for Ed Roland and The Sweet Tea Project. Rizzi will challenge Tin Drum fans to show off their drumming skills using chopsticks by posting a video on social media. Each day from October 15 - 24, Tin Drum will feature all contest entries on its Facebook page to let their fans vote for the best drumming video. That daily winner will win 10 free Tin Drum meals. Of those daily winners, Tin Drum will select one grand prize winner to receive $1,000 and the title of “10th Anniversary Tin Drummer.”
Tin Drum Asiacafé, which has a location at 2561 Piedmont Road in Buckhead, was inspired by the legend of the “Tin Drummer.” He would gather residents of ancient villages into the colorful cafés that lined the sidewalks for meals, entertaining them with his drum and engaging in lively conversation. This spirit is alive in all Tin Drum locations along with the bold flavors found on the streets of CEO Steven Chan’s native Hong Kong. Its carefully curated music selection evokes the hustle and bustle of the streets. Tin Drum’s music is selected because it encapsulates the energy and movement of the streets.
Georgia Tech graduate and restaurant entrepreneur Steven Chan saw the opportunity to blend Asian flavors with the growing demand for fast and healthy options. Chan opened his first Tin Drum at his alma mater’s Midtown campus in 2003. Today, Tin Drum has become one of the fastest growing, Pan Asian dining concepts with 12 Southeastern locations. The café features more than 28 items made fresh-to-order with Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Indian influences and 15 signature sauces. In the past decade, Tin Drum has emerged as a top choice for workers on the go, tourists and local residents alike with its energetic dining atmosphere and bold dishes. Earning a spot in The Atlantan’s “Toque Trends” and QSR Magazine’s “One to Watch,” this fast-casual chain has become a frontrunner in the restaurant scene throughout the Southeast.
