Newark, Calif.--Chinese Restaurant News announced that Yi Hing Restaurant located in 19 W Main St., Plantsville, Connecticut, was named the Top 100 Overall Excellence. The announcement was made at the 7th Annual Top 100 Chinese Restaurants in the USA Awards Show held at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in San Francisco. With more than 45,000 Chinese eateries in the United States, the national event organized by Chinese Restaurant News recognizes, cultivates, and preserves the best in Chinese cuisine. Yi Hing Restaurant’s superb showing in the Top 100 Chinese Restaurants Competition is sure to attract more patrons during the upcoming Chinese New Years.

This year’s Top 100 Chinese Restaurant Awards Show was hosted by celebrity chef Martin Yan and radio cooking show hostess Theresa Lin, the executive food designer of the award winning movie,“Eat Drink Man Woman.” Co-hosting the Awards were Felix Chu and Mina Li, San Francisco Bay Area community leaders who have emceed hundreds of charity and community events.“Chinese Restaurant News introduced the first Top 100 Chinese Restaurants award in 2004. It has since become an annual tradition for members of the Chinese restaurant industry to gather together at this event,” said Kung Yu, Publisher of Chinese Restaurant News. Over the years, Top 100 has made great strides in helping to raise standards around the industry so that restaurants can better help spread Chinese culinary culture one plate at a time. Yi Hing Restaurant is an extraordinary example of one restaurant that has been quite successful at providing a great dining experience to those curious about Chinese culture.

This year’s theme was “The Future of Chinese Dining and Its 150-Year History in America.” Those who attended the Top 100 award show were dazzled by a culinary show, food carving, seminars, and a dine-around-town event in San Francisco, where Chinese cuisine originated in the U.S. Besides being the first time that the event was held in the Bay Area it was also the first time that the event included a public cooking demonstration showcasing Chinese signature dishes.“I’m happy to see the Chinese chefs come out of their restaurant kitchens to cook in front of the public, and in front of my film crew. As I often put it, Yan Can Cook, so can you,” said Chef Martin Yan.

Yi Hing Restaurant, located in 19 W Main St, Plantsville, Connecticut, is owned by Piu Kwok and offers Americanized Chinese favorites including Chow Mein, Chop Suey, Moo Shu, Fried Rice and Egg Foo Young, etc. Making sure to integrate traditional recipes with new trends, the restaurant offers menu items that are prepared in a healthy manner using only the finest and freshest ingredients.

There are a total of over 100 time-honored delicacies on the menu. Standard Americanized Chinese fare such as the spicy General Tso’s Chicken, Boneless Spare Ribs, Steamed Dumpling and Teriyaki Beef, are really loved by the customers. While some people think that a distinctive Chinese restaurant is achieved in offering a selection of diet dishes or traditional Chinese offerings, Yi Hing makes no exception of providing a series of diet specials on the menu in order to satisfy health conscious visitors.

To qualify for an Award, restaurants must receive positive industry or customer recognition and must be in business a minimum of two years, except for those qualifying in the Top Rising Star category. Restaurant menus also must consist of at least 50 percent Chinese cuisine, except for those qualifying in the Asian Restaurants category. The final results are tabulated with Mystery Diner's scores from an independent third party and direct votes from the public at large.
