sukhoTHAI ~ 274 Parliament St. ~ (416) 913-8846

Chef Nuit Regular needs no introduction. She’s single-handedly shaped the Toronto Thai food scene, building her  empire while collaborating with many of the city’s best. The Toronto Food Blog would like to give a shout out to our favorite Toronto Thai restaurant of all time… the one that started it all… sukhoTHAI @ 274 Parliament…

Kaiju ~ 384 Yonge St ~ (647) 748-6338

In the basement of the city’s tallest condo lies one of the city’s smallest food courts. It’s really nothing much to speak of. At first glance, one might actually miss Kaiju (tucked away in stall 51). If the PATH ever reaches Aura, this location could become a hot spot. For now, though, Kaiju is gaining notoriety…

Queen Mother Cafe ~ 208 Queen St W ~ (416) 598-4719

Founded in the fall of 1978 (much like the author of this review), the Queen Mother Café is celebrating its 35th year in the heart of downtown (208 Queen W). I had walked by this place many times, thinking it was little more than a local watering hole. Well, chef Noy Phongnanouvong offers-up some of…

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…

Sabai Sabai ~ 225 Church St. ~ 647-748-4225

I was recently asked to organize a double-date and had heard a lot of good things about Sabai Sabai… a much-needed new Thai restaurant on Church between Dundas and Queen. Arriving way too early, I sit at the bar and converse with the owner, Seng Luong, over a couple of Beer Lao. Now, I haven’t had one of…

Khao San Road – 326 Adelaide St W – (647) 352-5773

When one walks by Khao San Road, it’s immediately obvious that they’re doing something right. A line-up out the door at lunch intimates that we should probably make a reservation if we want to get a spot for dinner. Being a large party, we were accommodated by being seated at a long table with less-than-comfortable wooden…

Khmer Thai – 1018 St. Clair Ave. West – (416) 654-0609

When my wife and I moved to St. Clair West, a colleague of mine told us we had to try Khmer Thai. Our interest was piqued by the billing of the best (and possibly only) Cambodian food in the city. Located 2 blocks west of Oakwood, inside the confines of a former Coffee Time, this…
