Axia Restaurant & Bar

Location: A-5045 Plantation Pl., Mississauga If it weren’t for the “Restaurant & Bar” in the name…you’d think Axia were a club.  You did, didn’t you? Well, it’s not.  I don’t know why they named it that, ’cause the inside of it looks like some sort of vacation package hotel….cane chairs upholstered in tropical fabric, hanging … Continue reading

TRAVEL: New Hampshire, Thon Khao

Location: 427 Amherst St., Nashua, NH Who knew such a tiny, hole-in-the-wall, strip-mall restaurant could rival some of my fave Thai restos in Toronto! For the  $8.95 Lunch special, the Green curry chicken, salad & pork dumplings and the Chicken with cashews, salad & pork dumplings were special, indeed. As always, I could have done … Continue reading

Thai Senses

Location: http://www.thaisenses.ca How apt, we came to our senses and left Compass’s Grand Opening to grab some real grub and found Thai Senses. A wonderful hospitality and creative dishes made for a memorable meal. The coconut ice-cream was complimentary! Besides the creepy fish head, the meal was quite tasty and a welcome change in hospitality … Continue reading

Thai Princess update

Went to Thai Princess again a few weeks ago and noticed that the portions have decreased incredibly. Smaller servings and half-filled bowls of my favourite dish: the vermicelli with chicken and spring roll. Prices are still the same. Four dishes at Thai Princess will buy you six dishes at Sukhothai. Well, that’s just how the … Continue reading


Location: 274 Parliament Street, Toronto http://www.sukhothaifood.com So it’s in a shady location, what does it matter when you can get real, authentic Thai food? Sukhothai, which sounds wonderful when chanted (su-kho-THAI! su-kho-THAI!) as my friend did in anticipation of our visit, is a tiny Thai resto in Corktown. We got there at a decent hour … Continue reading

Grand Opening: Compass Lakeside Grill & Lounge

Location: 2340 Ontario Street, Oakville So I was invited to attend the VIP Grand Opening of the latest waterfront resto in Bronte’s Harbour:  Compass Lakeside Grill & Lounge. When we arrived just after 8pm, Compass was out of food so I can’t make any judgments on that however I can comment on the drinks and … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Montreal: Chu Chai

Location: 4088 Rue Saint-Denis, Montreal, QC Cost: approx $90 for two (incl. glasses of wine) http://www.chuchai.com/ Mock duck, you say? I never thought I’d actively scope out a vegetarian Thai restaurant…but that’s what we did when we were in Montreal. Coming highly recommended from more than a few friends, Chu Chai is a trendy zen-like … Continue reading

Thai Satay & More

Location: 187 Cross Avenue Oakville, ON Cost: buffet $11.95 http://www.thaisatayandmore.com “What’s the ‘more’ in Thai Satay and More?” That’s the question I was asking on Sunday when we discovered that TS&M was one of the only few places open for dinner on a Sunday evening in the Ville. Stoney’s was closed. The buffet at TS&M … Continue reading

Salad King

For this review of Salad King, I’ve invited one part of the wonderful couple (and fellow bloggers) I dined with at SK, to contribute her take on this restaurant which will be up soon. ~~ A couple of the neon lights in the “Salad King” sign were out when we went – so it read … Continue reading

Flip, Toss & Thai Kitchen

Location: 141 Harbord St. (at Brunswick Ave.) Cost: Approx $15 each for a soup & entree http://www.fliptossthai.com When I called to make reservations, the lady on the phone was so polite, hesitating only when I asked for a table for six, but then graciously took down my name and confirmed the reservation. Later, on my … Continue reading
