Everything is so expensive in Reykjavik so all my eating out was restricted to (relative) cheap eats. This strategy did pay off, I found some great stuff without too much damage to the ol’ savings account. One of my highlights was the hearty curry from […]
Fish and chips and Asian food? This sounds too much like my childhood. Vicky’s Fish & Chips is one of Toronto’s answers to when you have two food type cravings. We headed up to the road to Roncesvalles Avenue for a cheap and delightful dinner.
I’d love to have a home near Thai Home. And my friend is fortunate to be in that situation, being mere seconds from the front door in Roncesvalles Village. We dined in for the $10 set lunch, and this was straight out incredible. It’s not a store with a hip buzz and the interior has some queasy mismatch. But in a way this usually makes for the best. The food is great value and mega tasty.
Our evening on our Oxford day trip concluded with a dinner at Chiang Mai Kitchen. We paced ourselves rather well over our time in the city. The meal arrived at the point with just enough to get back to to the station with ease. Chiang […]
Even here in the labyrinths of old town Vieux Nice, all I can crave is noodles and/or rice. I attribute that to my Asian household upbringing. It’s quick, cheap and a lot more fuss-free than some of the other options. I headed into a popular […]
The name of Rosa’s originally comes from the previous owner of their very first location. Times have changed and now there are ten Rosa’s restaurants around London. That’s some Thai food domination right there. I popped into the Soho branch of Rosa’s ready for a spicy bite to warm up my mid-Summer blues (this is London).
We had a taste of Thailand on a recent venture into FOMO Thai on Bourke Street. Our little group had just finished an escape room (horrific fail) so some no fuss Thai cuisine was in order. FOMO sits on the more pricier scale for Thai […]
For one of my final work lunches in South Melbourne I crossed the road for Thai Deli. This is one of the area’s staple Thai cafes, churning out delicious and speedy authentic meals in a relaxed and entirely non-pretentious setting. I ordered the sticky rice noodle […]
Today was a travel day for work, which means trying new places in a completely unfamiliar city. Although it might not be that unfamiliar, I’ve been a fair few times by now. This was the lunch choice for today and I’ve previously been for a dinner service which was just as pleasant. Kin is part of a chain of restaurants and based in the Canberra Centre here, so has a fair share of foot traffic in any already busy locale.
The few times I’ve been these always serious crowds though we didn’t quite have to queue on this occasion as there are quite a few seats and there was only two of us. The menus are pretty expansive with lunch options amongst the sharing dinner menu options which are also available. Service was efficient and the food didn’t take long to come either.
The Pad Prik Khing was stir fried crispy pork with beans and wasn’t as spicy as it appears – the chilli kaffir lime jam is really tasty and the pork is amazingly fried and crispy. I can see why my friend has recommended it and the price points here are pretty reasonable.
The second option we went for was the Kua Gai Noodle which was essentially flat noodles with egg, chicken and interestingly, bacon. The dish came with a side of chill sauce, which I’m not a huge fan of, so perhaps it was a bit more under-seasoned for me. Otherwise it was pretty good and the quality of the ingredient was fab. A solid option for slightly modern Thai when in Canberra town.
Pro tip: good for sharing options, book for a big table
