This bustling restaurant is a perfect place to visit with friends. This place goes for a modern look with plush seating and trendy decorations hanging on the walls. During the nighttime, the restaurant glows with bright lights. Big groups often come here for the fun ambience and excellent service.
We recommend trying the stuffed Hakka tofu. This traditional dish is served with crispy tofu stuffed with minced pork and shrimp. It’s topped off with green onions and oyster sauce for a nice balance of flavour. This dish is salty and has a bit of spice to it. The shrimp tastes fresh and has a semi-sweet and mild taste, combined with the pork which has a lighter flavour. Lastly, the dish is garnished with green onions to give it a bit of a crunch.
Another classic dish you have to try is beef and broccoli. The gravy used for the meat is thick and savoury. The broccoli balances the dish with an earthy flavour. The beef sirloin is tender and falls apart in your mouth. You also get to choose between Chinese and Canadian broccoli, with the main difference being Chinese broccoli is more thickly stemmed and has flat leaves while the latter is smaller.
End your meal with some chicken pakora. This dish seasons chicken thigh with curry spices, and Thai chilli. It is lightly breaded and comes in its signature red colour. Every bite into the crunchy outer shell leads to the juicy meat inside. It’s a great side dish to share around the table or enjoy individually. This dish is a must-try when you’re visiting this restaurant.
Yueh Tung Restaurant has an extensive menu with many delicious dishes to choose from. You get authentic Hakka cuisine at reasonable prices. As one of the older Hakka restaurants in Toronto, they definitely show their experience in their cooking.
