Cecilia Chiang, The Mandarin

San Francisco, California

“I wanted to serve real Chinese food. I knew I could do better than chop suey.”

Cecilia Chiang is the legendary restaurateur credited with revolutionizing Chinese food in America. Born in 1920, she was displaced from Beijing by the Japanese occupation and eventually made her way to San Francisco’s Chinatown. Disheartened by the Americanized Cantonese food that appeared on every menu, she opened The Mandarin in 1961 to serve the northern Chinese cuisine of her home. While she sold the restaurant in the early 90s, she continues to be an active mentor and guards the knowledge of a bygone era.
