Chavrat (Chevy) DuBose born and raised in Cambodia, moved to Seattle, Washington in 1997 where she lived for 18 years. A job promotion for her husband Mike relocated the family to Waco, Texas in 2015. Once here, Chevy found it difficult to find Cambodian food in Waco. She found herself traveling to either the Austin or Dallas areas to pick up items from various Asian markets which she used to create traditional Cambodian dishes. One by one, Chevy began sharing and cooking for some of her friends. These friends highly encouraged her to share her dishes on a larger scale, i.e. a food trailer or restaurant.
October 2016, Mike and Chevy on an impulse decided, why not buy a small food trailer and see what happens. That first week of December Chevy, Mike, and son Aaron debuted some of Chevy’s favorite Cambodian dishes as The Blasian Asian in Waco, TX. Although she had many dishes that she wanted to share with the folks in Waco, the small food trailer presented challenges in what she could produce. As the popularity of her food quickly grew, it became obvious that the need for a larger trailer was a necessity. So, in August of 2017, The Blasian Asian moved to a larger trailer that accommodated more of what Chevy needed for a larger menu selection. This also simultaneously created the ability to keep up with a much larger demand than what was first expected.
On March 13th, 2020, the business made the move to a building. The Blasian Asian found its new home inside the Union Hall building Waco, TX. Unfortunately, due the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the city of Waco made the decision to close all restaurant dining three days after the doors were opened. The Blasian Asian was pleasantly surprised by the level of support received from the local community. The amount growth during these difficult times will always be sincerely appreciated.
May 2nd, 2023 marked the latest chapter of our journey. We found the perfect restaurant location still right here in the heart of Waco. 506 Austin Ave shares the corner with city of Waco icon, the Alico building. While you enjoy your meal on the outside eating patio, you are presented with a breathtaking view of the beautiful McLennan County Courthouse. We are super excited about this location as it gives us a bigger and better working environment. This allows the creation of authentic dishes that we found challenging to create in our smaller food court location. The menu here is larger than what we have at the Union Hall location and is continuously growing. Stop by and see what we have new to offer.
We welcome you to join us at The Blasian Asian. Let our family give you an alternative to the ordinary eating routine!

"This place has been rated the best in Waco's food truck business; with good reason, too!
You'll find this gem near the suspension bridge between Franklin and University Park. Cute little seating area with umbrellas to provide shade from the heat.
They have the menu with pictures and a description of what each dish has in it. If you have any allergies, your best bet would be to notify them first so they can tell you what may or may have something you may be allergic to. I believe they use a sweet fish sauce and I know some that would have an allergic reaction if they were to eat it.
The owners are absolutely amazing. Chevy has been there every time that I've stopped by preparing all of the delicious nomnoms.
My favorite things to order are the combo 2 and the yellow chicken curry. I will eventually move on to trying new things but hey, I am completely happy right now lol.
They take cash and card. They also participated in Safe2Save where you can rack up points while driving and not texting and in turn you can save on your meals.
I highly recommend coming here. I will be back very soon"
A truly pleasant experience at The Blasian Asian does not just offers great food but one that creates a visual depiction of a real childhood memory of the owner. Chevy chose these murals to be painted as part of her desire to share with everyone that visits us a culture from her very own eye. Come in and ask her about the memories portrayed in these works of art.
We were extremely surprised and flattered when KWTX 10 asked if they could air a story of The Blasian Asian supporting a local youth mentoring group, "Mentor Waco". For us, we don't feel that we are simply a restaurant in the city. We feel that we have an obligation to the community which supported us as we traveled from food truck, to a quick-serve location during the peak of Covid-19, and now to our new second restaurant location
