225 Church Street
It's been a while since I've blogged so bear with me while I blast out a number of posts. After much rave about Sabai Sabai my foodie coworker and I just had to try it out for ourselves. We walked in (without a reservation) on a Wednesday around 6pm, the place was empty but we were told we only had an hour and a half for our meal before we had to leave because of the next reservation.
The atmosphere is casual and relaxed with little brightly coloured lanterns hung around the back of the restaurant.
Thai Iced Tea, $4 and Mock Mojito $4.
We were quite excited about trying Sabai Sabai considered Chef Nuit is from Khao San Road (my all time favourite Thai restaurant in Toronto). I had to order the Crispy Shrimp Chips with Tamarind sauce, $4.
They were crispy, salty with a hint of spiciness.
Desi highly recommended the Deep fried freshly grated squash fritters, $7. I enjoyed it but wasn't blown away.
How could we not get the Khao soi, egg noodles in coconut curry gravy with beef, $9? Creamy and rich but it felt like it was a tad too sweet. The beef was incredibly tender though.
We also got the Grilled Chicken Wings with Sabai Sabai House Marinade, $7.
This really reminded me of my mom's BBQ chicken wings which I love and is what I look forward most to during the summer. Sweet, spicy and sticky; finger-licking-good. At this point we were stuffed so I don't think we enjoyed it as much as we would have liked to.
There was noway we could've left without getting the Mango Sticky Rice but sadly it wasn't as coconuty or creamy as I would've liked it to be.
Overall Sabai Sabai is good but not on my number one pick for Thai food.
