What are Ming Tsai's favorite cities?
I love, in this country, San Francisco. Not only did I get married there, but I think it's really one of the best cities in the world to visit and to live. The Bay Area has everything. It has great weather although yes we know August is very cold; but in general, the weather is spectacular. You have, within an hour's drive, some of the best wineries in the world, which also means the best produce, which translates to best restaurants. Huge influence of Asian, so it has a couple Chinatowns now in San Francisco. Not just Chinese but Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian — all ethnic cuisines well represented. You can go skiing within a couple of hours and everything you'd want to do at a beach; so you really have every natural playground. Muir woods is one of the most amazing parks there that you can go in and camp. It's like Disneyland for adults: it has everything you'd want.
