Bryn Mawr’s Yangming is no stranger to accolades: it was ranked by USA Today in 2005 as one of America’s “Ten Great Places to dine on fine Chinese food,” and twice selected to prepare a banquet at the celebrated James Beard House in New York City.
But this past Sunday, Yangming received its greatest measure of distinction: it placed first at the 7th annual “Top 100,” a first-of-its-kind national competition run by Chinese Restaurant News, America’s leading national publication focusing on the Chinese restaurant industry.
With dishes like Spicy Veal Ravioli, Mango Chicken with Mirin Brandy Sauce and Wok-Tossed Mustard Coconut Shrimp, it’s no wonder Yangming has received such positive national attention. But out of 45,000 Chinese restaurants nationwide, in an industry that produces 2.5 million meals a day, the award is still staggering.
CBS Sunday Morning did a piece on the whole awards ceremony this weekend; check it out online and catch a glimpse of Yangming winning first.
