Start off you morning with a traditional Thai coffee, made fresh at your table in a cup with condensed milk.
With too many delicious options to choose from, it’s hard to pick between the Thai-style eggs or alternative breakfast options. We opted to share the Eggs “Benedict”, Thai-Style that mixed the delicious smoked duck breast served on a butter brioche and drizzled with Panang curry. Each of the Thai-style benedict’s pair their perfectly poached eggs with a curry that compliments the tastes of the toppings. And, all the ingredients are sourced locally as the eggs are organic, farm fresh eggs from the St. Lawrence Market and Mabel’s Bakery makes the butter brioche fresh.
We then had the Roti Gulay, a Thai banana egg pancakes that fills a flour roti with eggs and bananas. It was the perfect mixture of a thin savoury pancake matched with the natural sweetness of the bananas. Every brunch item on the menu was served with your choice of Thai congee, mango salad and my personal favourite the pathongko (Thai dough fritter) served with sangkaya (Thai coconut egg custard spread). The Thai congee is a traditional bowl accompanied with rotating fixing such as leftover such as peanuts, pickled cabbage and fish sauce spiked with chilies. The mixture of lightly fried pathongoko and the coconut sangakaya was simply amazing and their mango salad recipe was a refreshing side. I recommend you try them all!
