C’est Bon was set up in 2000 and suc­cess didn’t come easy. It was only af­ter seem­ingly end­less ex­per­i­ment­ing that even­tu­ally cre­ated award-win­ning recipes. The top qual­ity of in­gre­di­ents used with the im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice soon was re­warded with a loyal clien­tele which en­abled the restau­rant to man­age to stay afloat dur­ing the SARS cri­sis. As de­mand has in­creased, C’est Bon has ex­panded to the Yonge & Eglin­ton area by open­ing a sec­ond lo­ca­tion in 2006. Cus­tomer favourites are plen­ti­ful at C’est Bon. Among them: General Tsao’s Chicken, Crispy Gin­ger Beef, Seafood Can­tonese Chow Mein and of course, the award­win­ning Sweet & Sour Chicken. Ac­cord­ing to Steve, the restau­rant is best known for its Basil Chicken which is pre­pared in a home­made sweet soy sauce with gar­lic, gin­ger and gar­den-fresh basil. Veg­e­tar­i­ans are in luck as well with a va­ri­ety of op­tions on the menu in­clud­ing a braised tofu dish with shi­take mush­rooms. Steve at­tributes much of his suc­cess to his mother, Won­der Chen. He says her hard-work­ing spirit taught him never to give up. Won­der al­ways en­cour­aged him say­ing that hard work would be re­quited with good things.
