Khmer Thai- Toronto

Khmer Thai

Price: $-$$

Location: 1018 St, Clair Ave West.

Cuisine: Thai & Cambodian

If you’re in the mood for a home cooked taste, then this is the place. Its simple food prepared by the owners themselves in a very warm home-like environment. I have gone there for the past 5 years and I have never been disappointed.

I first start with an order of the chicken spring rolls and then I have either the PHANAENG KAI
Chicken Curry, Basil, Peanuts, Coconut Milk, with Rice or the GOLDEN CHICKEN
Spicy Hot and Sour Chicken, Coconut Milk, Peanuts, Lemon Grass or the THAI CURRY
Green Curry Paste, Chicken, Coconut Milk, Vegetable.

It also a great place for tasty vegetarian food, the tofu dishes are all tasty and simply delicious.

By far one of the best Indian Restaurants in Toronto. Had the Goanese fish and prawns, Butter Chicken & Baigan Bharta. They were all quite flavorful and very aromatic. Lots of great spices, the prawns and the fish were fresh and made perfectly.

Beautiful presentation, Amazing food, Friendly service. 

I had the Crispy Squid, Laab Gai (Northern Lao speciality), Mhee Ubon (Northeastern noodles) and Khao Paad Goong Hoalapha (Spicy shrimp fried rice). It was all so delicious. Brought home the leftovers with the intentions of having it the next day, well lets  just say that there was none left by the next day. Just what i needed, some tasty authentic Thai food. Every dish was presented with  beautifully carved vegetables and fruits. I cant wait to go again, i honestly think that i feel safe enough to try every dish in there. (Which i plan on doing :) See you there!


Dulce Bombe Cafe

Stumbled upon this hidden Italian pastry gem a couple days ago. They specialize in the southern Italian dessert called a Bombe. How can i describe it, its like a donut but it’s sooo not a donut. Its a warm fluffy bun filled with different creamy delights. Such as lemon custard, chocolate, vanilla, and my favorite warm nutella.

The bakers are a husband and wife team that are both Italian. They are very excited about their new venture and just enjoyed feeding me more and more of their sweet creations. Really nice people, really cute place. Its definitely worth the trip, you can also order for pick up. As i sat there people were just swarming in to collect pre-orders of bombe’s by the dozens.

Kalendar Bistro

Mojito

If you’re looking for a cool place to chill-lax on a Friday evening this is the place. Very happening in a relaxed sort of way. Maybe you want to sit and enjoy a good conversation, and actually be able to hear what the other person has to say. Great menu of drinks to choose from, martinis, mojitos, bourbons etc. I enjoyed a glass of Sangria ☺
Also on the menu there are dinner items, desserts and some great appetizers.
Don’t forget to check out the blackboard with the list of nightly specials !
Oh ! and the staff was great too !  see & read more here


Nadege patisserie -Toronto

780 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G2 (416) 368-2009

Let me begin by saying that they have if not THE best one of the BEST almond croissants that I have ever had ! ( and I have had a few) A near perfect croissant in terms of flakiness, texture and taste. The filling was the perfect amount and sweetness. And the top ,, well the almonds could not have been slivered any better and with every bite there was ideal amount of crunch from the almonds.

Mind you that’s not all that they have , there is an array of other beautiful things. Like, a colorful array of macaroons and other well sculptured perfectly designed cakes. (Not sure if “cake” is the right word.)

So I also tried a “cake” that was wrapped with green tea on the outside and filled with a raspberry cream. This is exactly what I needed at that time of day. It was a warm and humid Friday afternoon, and this “cake” was cool and refreshing with just a touch of sweetness. Very light and airy not too heavy and filling. Just Fabulous !

Banfi-Toronto

Bucatini

Italian Restaurant
Banfi-Foresthill Village
Compliments to the chef .. that’s all I have to say.

Okay so no there’s a lot more I would like to say.

Bravo.Bravo.Bravo.
What words can I use to describe the extreme joy and happiness that I feel at Banfi ? …….. I have thought it over and there simply are no words.

The food : superb. The Service : excellent. The ambience: breathe taking !

Cuisine: Northern and Southern Styled Italian

Price: $$

The Service: Always with a smile, they take your coats at the door, If you are waiting over ten minutes the server arrives with complimentary antipasto, I have never had a bad experience there ! And I have been there many times ☺ Even the chefs in the kitchen throws you a smile. Oh and the host of the evening, very charming and attentive. He makes sure that all is well at the table, try’s to get you the best seat in the house and always with a generous smile.

The Ambience: Hmm the restaurant is small but cute, noisy but a pleasure, the smells are irresistibly aromatic, for an hour you feel like you’re somewhere in Italy.

The Food: well, where do I begin. I have had many of the dishes there, and lets just say that the dishwasher certainly had no trouble washing my plate. As I cleaned it up nicely. Firstly they serve the bread and the olives. That may seem simple to you, but let me tell you that the Olives are amazing ! seriously if they were to bottle it and sell it I would buy cases of it. Its just that good. Then there’s a wonderful array of antipasti to choose from. I Usually skip this as I have eaten so many olives and just cant wait for the main.
I bravely say that no matter which main you order it WILL be great ! There are nightly specials as well. Like Bucatini with lobster & Lasagna.

Here’s what I do, because the pizza is also so good, as they are known for having a fabulous thin crust. I usually take a friend with me so that way we order a pasta dish and a pizza and we share. YEY ! it doesn’t get any better than that.

Don’t forget to save room for dessert. The tiramisu is another joy to behold. Once you taste this it leaves an indelible impression on you.

Ladies and gentlemen, you must try this. If you get there and there is a line, just line up ! its worth it. And there is hardly a day you can go there and there isn’t a line anyway. (Unless off course you go later in the night like around 9pm shhhhh ). See & read more here.
