Very nice place
Posted on 02 / 01 / 2010
Yong Green opened up in December 2009 and seems to be attracting a loyal following already. It is a smallish cafe-type place, but has a nice atmosphere and clearly the venue is aimed at making diners comfortable. It is located close to the corner of Brunswick St and Alexandra Pde.
The food is innovative pan-Asian veggie fare, with a noticeable Korean influence (reflecting the background of the owners). Many of the dishes are vegan. Prices are very reasonable, and meal portions are quite filling, though not large.
Yong Green is a standout in Melbourne because it offers a range of raw veg dishes. We tried both cooked and raw offerings, and all of the meals passed the taste test with flying colours. A special treat is the raw cheesecake, available in chocolate, blueberry, and green tea flavour.
However, the most pleasing aspect of this place is the genuine warmth and friendliness of the owners-staff. They made sure we were having a good time, and were attentive and interested in our experience there. In fact, they went beyond treating us well; the service was truly superb!
My friends and I will be visiting this place as happy regulars from now on.
Excellent service, Great raw and cooked selections, Reasonable prices
