There are a lot of restaurants across the country that aren't doing as well as the owners would like, and there are seemingly as many shows that offer to help turn around failing restaurants. "Restaurant Redemption" is unique in that it focuses on restaurants that serve Asian cuisine. Taiwanese chef Ching-He Huang travels across the U.S. to help struggling restaurant owners by revitalizing menus and presenting a new direction to turn around each business. Ching also updates each eatery's decor. Her hope is that by tapping into her Asian heritage and culinary expertise, she can help save the owners from financial ruin.
