Constructor's Note: This puzzle was made specifically for DOT's APIA night market festival event. One crossword puzzle is nowhere near as big enough to represent and highlight every single culture that makes up our diverse universe. Nevertheless, I tried my best to take you on a culinary journey of deliciousness you might encounter in the bustling and vibrant night markets throughout Asia. The thing I absolutely love about food (other than making my tummy happy), is that it's a common thread that connects us all.
