[SF] Always Making Progress – The Progress

The Progress, locating near the Japantown on Fillmore, is the sister restaurant of the famous State Bird Provisions, which is a michelin one-starred restaurant. They are geographically right next to each other as well. Since my friend and I couldn't snap a table at the State Bird Provisions, we were glad that at least we got one at The Progress. Though The Progress has not yet earned a michelin star yet, the Esquire magazine has named it the 2015's best new American restaurant, and the chefs/owners, Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski, are the masters behind the scene.

[HK] Highest Chinese Restaurant in the World – Tin Lung Heen [Two Michelin-Starred]

Tin Lung Heen (天龍軒) is situated in the 102F of Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Hong Kong. It has received its first star soon after the opening in 2011, and been maintaining its two-starred honor since 2012. This achievement has to be attributed to the chef Paul Lau Ping Lui, whom is regarded as one of the top Cantonese chefs in Hong Kong. Since dim sum is a must in Hong Kong, and it's such a casual thing to do with friends and family, sometimes it is okay to fancy it up.

[TW] Ding Tai Fung (鼎泰豐)

Since I'm currently in Taiwan, I'll start off with Taiwanese food! Ding Tai Fung is well-known for its little dragon buns (小籠包), which is awarded with Michelin one star. It is also ranked as the #1 from a American food website. Ding Tai Fung started in Taipei, and has a lot of branches around the world. It has recently opened a new branch in Kaohsiung!
