Is there a Chinatown or enclave with a lot of Oriental stores/establishment in Cincinnati/Northern KY area?
Traditional Chinatown, no. And I'm not aware of any particular newer enclave.
If you're looking for a particular item, maybe try Jungle Jim's in Fairfield or Eastgate? They have sections devoted to products from many different countries. It's sort of like many different ethnic markets under one roof, plus a regular American grocery store (this description is underselling JJ's; you really do have to experience it).
Our Asian American community is equally spread out through out the area, no particular area although family groups will tend to live within fairly close proximity.
If there is something special you seek, stop in one of our many Asian restaurants and ask for a source.
Welcome and enjoy!! Cincinnati Magazine or TA can offer a starter list of these places.Edited: 3 years ago
Thank you for the responses.
CAM Asian Market is located in Evendale. In the same shopping center, you will find Kiss Cake, which is a Korean Bakery.
As others have said, there really isn't a large enclave in Cincinnati like you will find in other cities. I do believe the percentage of people of Asian descent is slightly larger in the northeast suburbs, though.
