Local restaurants receive national honors
Submitted By City of Hayward
Two of Hayward's established Chinese restaurants were honored at the "Top 100 Chinese/Asian" 8th Annual Awards Show and Conference (Top100.ChineseMenu.com), sponsored by Chinese Restaurant News, at the Santa Clara Convention Center on January 9, 2012. Hayward Councilman Olden Henson attended and presented several awards.
The overall mission of the Top organization is "to present the best of Chinese & Asian cuisines to the American and Canadian public." There are more than 46,000 Chinese restaurants within these jurisdictions, so recognition is no mean feat.
Awards were presented in the following categories: Top 100 Hall of Fame Restaurants; Top 100 Signature Dishes; Top 100 Local Favorites; Top 100 Takeouts; Top 100 Buffets; Top 100 Healthy Menus; Top 100 Rising Stars, and Top 100 Asian Restaurants (Dining Excellence).
New West Lake Restaurant (320 Jackson Street, Hayward) was recognized for their Peking Spareribs in the Top 100 Signature Dishes category; this establishment's excellent dim sum menu is widely recognized and draws customers from far and wide.
Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant (661 West Tennyson Road, Hayward) was honored in the Top 100 Takeouts category and is recognized regionally for their good food, reasonable prices and delivery service.
Mayor Michael Sweeney and Councilman Olden Henson presented the awards to Ms. Ka Liang, New West Lake Restaurant, and Ms. May Liang, Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant, at the February 7, 2012 Council meeting.
"Congratulations to both establishments. One could see the tough competition at the Santa Clara County Convention Center; there were restaurants from all over the world, such as Australia and Canada. Given the Bay Area's great restaurants, I was surprised the overall winner was from Abilene, Texas!" remarked Henson. "Nevertheless, we had the opportunity to do some tasting so I can attest to the fact that New West Lake Restaurant and Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant are two of the finest, not only in the country but in the world."
Both restaurants were excited about their awards and look forward to continuing to offer quality Chinese cuisine. They would like to thank customers for their continued support and look forward to welcoming new patrons.
