Eddie Yeung is the chef and founder of Wonton Hut, he was born in Hong Kong (China). Family members in the hospitality industry had greatly influenced his career to follow suit. At age of 16, he began apprenticeships with some renowned noodle chefs and explored deeply the intricate culinary art of southern style wonton. Immigrated to Canada in 1993, he worked at a number of restaurants in Toronto. Yeung opened his first Toronto restaurant Wonton Hut in 2009.
In 2022, Yeung opened Wonton Hut’s Queen West location, Toronto’s first wonton-centric restaurant outside of Chinatown. Yeung clearly understands the task he’s set for himself: “I’m not here to introduce people to wonton, but to re-introduce it to them. I want them to know what a wonton noodle is. It’s very classic. If you were going to pick a food to represent Hong Kong and Guangzhou, that would be wonton.”
