Lee Kitchen opened in T1 at Toronto Pearson International

World-renowned chef Susur Lee has partnered with restaurateur HMSHost to open an Asian-fusion restaurant called Lee Kitchen in Terminal 1 (T1) at Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada.

Lee was born in Hong Kong but has been living in Toronto since 2000 and currently owns three restaurants in the city. He also owns another restaurant in Singapore. He is currently a judge on the television show MasterChef Asia.

Chef Lee applies the precision of classical French techniques to traditional Chinese cuisine, resulting in a unique example of Asian-fusion fare. The menu at Lee Kitchen features an array of bistro-style entrees with items such as mushroom dumplings, five spice braised beef, and cheeseburger spring rolls made with chipotle mayo.

“I am truly excited about having a restaurant in the airport of my home city, and to be able to cater to international travelers,” said Lee. “Lee Kitchen is a great project for me, because it exposes so many travelers to both my popular dishes, and brand new recipes that I created specifically for people on the go. HMSHost has been a great partner on this restaurant and I look forward to working together on representing Toronto as an international dining destination.”

Scott Collier, vice president of customer and terminal services, Toronto Pearson, said, “Lee Kitchen offers international bound passengers in Terminal 1 the opportunity to start their journey with an innovative dining experience. We are passionate about providing our passengers with traditional and global food options, but at the end of the day, it’s about making sure we have truly good food for our passengers which is what Chef Lee brings to the airport.”
