About Noodle King & Ice Cream Queen

The following article is from the Saskatoon Star Pheonix:

Oodles of noodles, ice cream

By The StarPhoenix (Saskatoon) August 2, 2008

When Eric and Nina Yee travelled around the world, one thing jumped out at them.

"In every big city, we saw a lineup for ice cream," said Eric Yee.

So when the couple were deciding on their latest business venture, ice cream rose to the top of the list.

But ice cream wouldn't be enough for a year-round business, considering Saskatoon's climate.

"We had to fill it with something else," Yee said.

That something else turned out to be noodles and Noodle King and Ice Cream Queen was born on Second Avenue.

"I think this may be a first in Canada to combine noodles and ice cream," said Yee, who has been a businessperson for many years. He started Top LogiX Computers in 1980 and has also run an Asian grocery store for five years.

That's on top of being a chemical engineer at the Prince Albert Pulp Mill for 27 years until he retired a couple of years ago.

The restaurant offers noodle dishes that span the entire Asian regions, from Shanghai noodles to Japanese to Thai to vermicelli and rice noodles.

There are also spring rolls and North American fare such as hot roast beef sandwiches.

Their specialty is a toasted Vietnamese submarine (French bread with a choice of meats and sauces that is toasted).

And their ice cream selection is almost endless.

They have 40 flavours of gelato, 24 hard ice cream flavours and also soft ice cream.

Yee said gelato has a more intense flavour, but with only half the sugar and fat.

"And we're planning to make a gelato ice cream cake," he added.

Noodle King is open from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. seven days a week.
