Basil Thai Kitchen ~ 2326 Danforth Ave ~ 416-422-0617

Since I started this blog, one of the most memorable things I have eaten is Rendang Beef… enjoyed at an Indonesian resto in De Pijp, Amsterdam. I have been trying to recreate this meal ever since. Now, I have been able to find a couple of Malaysian places in Toronto that serve it, but we haven’t tried them out yet. This past Friday, I was walking down to the foot…
