I love this Korean fusion eatery for its tasty and reasonably priced vegan food. There're also burgers, wraps and other cuisines as well. Over the last 4 times I've dined there, I've loved the kimchi gyoza (dumplings), spicy silken tofu stew, kimchi dragon bowl and tofu katsu. My family like the burgers and Japchae (sweet potato noodles) as well. I... More

It was great to find this place with so many vegan options (asian style). Service was good and quick. The place is a bit noisy when full, so conversation at the table was not always easy. I had a green curry and it was as it should be; not spectacular but generally a standard green curry. The desserts were good... More

I went to Yong Green for a friends birthday with 5 others. Initially we thought there would be 10 people and the restaurant were very accommodating in making our table smaller and not charging us extra for the cancellation. The restaurant is all vegetarian Japanese cuisine with lots of raw, vegan and gluten free options. The decor is interesting, it... More

Asian food with definite Korean influences and genuine attempts to satisfy vegan sensitivities. Beautiful food presentation. Excellent, quick service. I find vegan dishes tend to have rather bland flavours.

キムチ玄米ボウルとraw chocolateケーキを注文しました。お味噌汁も美味しく、キムチも酸っぱすぎずすごく美味しかったです。 ケーキも甘すぎずコクがあり絶品です。スタッフはアジア人が多く、日本のベジタリアンレストランのような繊細な料理でとても気に入りました。 また行きたいです。 I ordered kimch brown rice bowl and raw chocolate cake. Miso soup was delicious and kimch was not too sour but really tasty. Raw chocolate cake was also not too sweet but rich. That was to die for. There were a lot of asian staff.

If you enjoy Vegan or Vegetarian food and are in the Fitzroy district go! Delicious, varied and fast! It was packed with people waiting outside! Great atmosphere, very casual and cafe style with healthy choices for any course, plus unusual drinks.

We love coming to Yong's. the kimchi gyoza and the salt and pepper "calamari " mushrooms are amazing. There are other great things on the menu, but these are the stand out.

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighbourhood Profile
Fitzroy
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.
