During National Asian American Pacific Islander Month, we are honored to spotlight one of the pillars of our AAPI community, Silantra Asian Street Kitchen. Their mission is to ensure that their quests “Eat Good. Do Good. Feel Good after a visit to Silantra. Owners Cindy Guo and Xian Sam Guo began their entrepreneurial journey when they opened their first location in downtown Lancaster at 101 E. King Street in 2015. 

They now have locations in York and on Fruitville Pike and plan to open a fourth location in Camp Hill in the summer of 2024. 

Cindy and Sam have always been deeply invested in giving back to their community. Over the years, they have donated tens of thousands of dollars and thousands of pounds of food to local nonprofits like Power Packs Project, Water Street Mission,  Lancaster Food Hub, and more. 

They now host fundraisers where they dedicate a day to a local organization and donate a generous percentage of the sales to give back to their mission.
