Wonderful piece on KQED by Rachael Myrow visiting Charles Phan of the Slanted Door (originally in the Mission) and many other San Francisco restaurants.

Charles Phan is a local boy, through and through: before he became a celebrity chef with the runaway success of the Slanted Door, he went to UC Berkeley and Mission High School. He spent his teen years in San Francisco’s Chinatown and recalls it nostalgically, even though his family struggled financially at the time. In the 1970s, his mother was making $2 an hour.  READ AND LISTEN TO THE WHOLE PIECE
