Eating out with Friends and Family at Yellow Leaf Chinese Food in Kingston
Disclosure: Our family received a meal at Yellow Leaf Restaurant in Kingston in exchange for this blog post. All opinions are our own.
“That was so good! When can we go back?”
That was my son after having had a meal at the Yellow Leaf Restaurant in Kingston. We hadn’t even finished the meal, and he was already plotting our return visit!
About Yellow Leaf
The new Yellow Leaf Restaurant is located on Main Street in Kingston and features Canadian Chinese and authentic Chinese food.
Yellow Leaf is run by husband and wife team Chris Wong and Candy Ip, originally from Hong Kong.
Did you know…
Wong = Yellow in Mandarin
Ip = Leaf in Mandarin
They added the maple leaf to their logo to symbolize their new Canadian home and came up with the perfect name for their restaurant!
The food – oh my goodness, is amazing!
Chef Chris Wong says the food is traditionally Hong Kong Chinese. The flavours and dishes might be a bit different from what you find in other Chinese restaurants. They can take the same ingredients, and depending if you fry, cook, steam or boil it, the dish is completely different.
Instead of everyone having a combo, we ate Asian-style, with several dishes in the middle of the table to eat from.
Before we went we warned Chef Wong that my husband was allergic to seafood, and he made sure there were things he could eat, and food was kept separate.
Everything was so good from the melt-in-your mouth tofu and vegetable dish to the egg rolls and the Singapore noodles. Apparently, these noodles are the most popular item on the menu, and when we were there, 3 take-out orders for them came in.
We now know why!
The menu is amazing, with so many choices (STC)
