Green Leaf Cafe opened in our neighbourhood recently, we did a pre-Mother’s Day lunch with daughter & son there yesterday. We arrived at the restaurant just after it had opened its doors at 11:30 am, received welcome greetings upon entering, were shown to a table (w/bench seating on one side, chairs on the other) near the window (views out to Cameron Street, and buildings/greenery over at the Cameron Library/Rec Centre in the background) - menus and tall glasses of cold water quickly followed.

Ambiance: “woody & warm” colours and materials, with ample natural light. Along with some background jazz music, it looked, sounded, and ‘felt’ pleasing.

Service: warm, friendly, and helpfully-attentive throughout our stay.

Food ordered: (Note: I have used names of dishes, and descriptions of ingredients, as per listings provided in the in the restaurant’s menu)

— Spicy Seafood Salad - daily fresh diced sashimi, seasonal greens, Korean style spicy sauce & yuzu ponzu vinaigrette — ‘Bulgogi’ Beef Platter (beef teriyaki) - sweet soy marinated charcoal grilled sliced beef (w/dipping sauce, rice, small potatoes, fresh lettuce greens, w/sliced radish, sprouts, and green beans) — Prawn Fritter (prawn tempura) - deep fried battered prawns (w/dipping sauce) — Green Leaf Signature “Aburi” Platter - six kinds signature aburi oshi: salmon, basil prawn, yukke tuna, mackerel, scallop, and aburi tobiko (w/garnishes of sprouts, sliced olives and hot peppers, pickled ginger, sauces, spices/herbs, and etc).

Dishes arrived in a timely and ‘the’ appropriate sequence. Salad was first, and I believe we all let out rather loud “wows” when it was put on the table - so good looking! And preparation a big yum - ingredients so fresh, bright, and cool, with sauce, dressing, and spices very flavourful and tasty. The prawn tempura arrived next - it looked good, and tasted the same - batter was perfect ’see-through-light’ in texture, and crispy, prawns, large, tender, and sweet. Ordered for Mom (I snuck a taste), she savoured it. The beef teriyaki and aburi platters arrived last, with both presentations receiving appreciative ’wows’. Their preparations offered a fine assortment of distinctive textures, flavours, and tastes - each was well-received and enjoyed. The teriyaki beef was a dish ordered at Mom’s request, but shared by all - everything on the platter well-prepared, and the beef especially tender & sweet. I ordered the signature aburi platter, thought daughter and I just ‘had’ to see and experience it - we, and the others, were not disappointed - the makings were very decently-prepared, flavours and tastes much-enjoyed - it was a “fun” treat.

With our thanks, and good wishes to the hosts, our first time visit to Green Leaf was a most-delightful, and fun dining experience. Welcome to the hood!!
