TORONTO — Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre is unveiling two new restaurants — Yu Seafood and Konjiki Ramen — in the coming months.
“We’re seeing tremendous momentum and interest from retailers and brands, many of which are opening their first Canadian locations or flagship locations here,” says William Correira, director, Yorkdale Shopping Centre. “All our retailers have strong consumer demand. Introducing such a significant number of new stores and restaurants in the next few months reinforces our optimism in the retail sector and its bright future.”
Yu Seafood specializes in predominantly Cantonese dishes but also features dishes from across Eastern Asia, such as Singaporean-Style Slaw, Japanese Wagyu Beef and Peking Duck.
Konjiki Ramen was founded in Tokyo in 2006. The restaurant’s menu specializes in many forms of ramen such as spicy miso ramen ($15.50), smokey black tonkotsu ramen ($15.50) and signature clam intense shoyu ramen ($15.50). It will also feature items such as chicken karaage ($7.50), lobster gyoza ($9) and braised pork belly ($9.50).
Both restaurants aim to be open by the fall.
