Come along for a mouthwatering ride and catch The American Dream City's cultural diversity and unique cuisine with Arlington Eats on MyArlingtonTV.

In this month's edition of Arlington Eats, host Andrew Tanielian visits Ben Thanh Plaza, located at 1818 E Pioneer Pkwy #100 in East Arlington. David Dang bought the property in 2011 and saw an immediate opportunity to expand the plaza to create something special for residents and visitors.

Ben Thanh, which opened in 2016, now has more than 50 specialty businesses representing Vietnamese, Chinese, Laotian, Thai and Philippine cultures. The shopping center is a true representation of the diversity found here in The American Dream City.

Owner David Dang left Vietnam in 1978. After spending some time in New York and California, Dang arrived in Texas in 1997. Click here to read and watch his American Dream story.
