The famous Korean fast food chain opens its first restaurant in Toronto


A one-brand Korean fast food chain with thousands of locations for various concepts is opening its first-ever Canadian store right here in Toronto.

Yeondon Ball Katsu is basically inspired by the classic Japanese katsu, a comforting breaded cutlet dish, but turns it into a ball that’s supposed to be crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

The concept is overseen by Korean conglomerate brand THEBORN, which has its origins in the 1990s and now has over 2,000 stores in Korea alone and now also has locations in China, Japan, South Asia Southeast and United States.

Yeondon Ball Katsu was actually launched in 2021 to promote Korean pork consumption.

In addition to the basic ball katsu, the chain also serves ball katsu burgers which appear to be ball katsu split open and stuffed with different ingredients. There is also a katsu cheese ball stuffed with gooey cheese.

They also do mini ball katsu and ball katsu sandwiches which are more like traditional katsu sandwiches.

There were 46 Yeondon Ball Katsu stores operating in Korea as of May 2022. In other parts of the world, Ball Katsu stores have a small square footage and are usually located along busy thoroughfares, and it appears that the Toronto location will be similar.

Yeondon Ball Katsu opens at 209 Dundas St. W. on November 18.
