Yangming named Best Chinese

Restaurant in America


In a glittering red carpet ceremony at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, more than 1,000 guests from around the world cheered as Yangming owner Michael Wei accepted the grand prize for Best Chinese Restaurant in America.

The 7th Annual Top 100 Awards welcomed chefs from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada and Australia to America’s premier showcase for Chinese cuisine.

The 4-day Conference and Awards Ceremony (January 8-11, 2011) featured an international culinary exchange, seminars, and a dine-around-town event in San Francisco, where Chinese cuisine originated in the U.S 150 years ago.


Michael Wei was also honored as one of the most “Influential Personalities in the Restaurant Industry,” along with TV stars Martin Yan (Yan Can Cook) and Ming Tsai (Simply Ming).

Upon his triumphant return, Michael Wei said “This is a great day for me and my employees. With more than 45,000 Chinese restaurants in America, I am humbled by this honor. I did not achieve this prominence alone. Our customers know that the pride in quality at Yangming is shared by every hard-working employee.”

The Top 100 Awards Show is organized by Chinese Restaurant News, America’s leading national publication focusing on the Chinese restaurant industry, which prepares an amazing 2.5 million meals daily.
