The worst Asian stereotype is probably the most common one: that we're all the same (either we look the same, our cultures are the same, that our languages or food are the same. The reality is that the term "Asian" comprises many, many different distinct cultures, people, languages and food! The best Asian stereotype? Not sure if there's a good one since positive stereotypes like the Model Minority (we're all smart and successful) are just as destructive...we're all about flipping stereotypes on the head.
