Salad King


*Note: This review was written in 2017 and got lost in the archives.*

After our visit at the Google Home Mini pop-up in Toronto and after 2 hours of waiting (for doughnuts!), we were hungry. We decided to go to eat at Salad King, a Thai restaurant in the heart of downtown Toronto.

I love Thai food mainly because of the spices used in their dishes. I’m not big of spicy foods but a spice kick is a good thing once in awhile. I’ll be honest though – most of the Thai foods I’ve had were either Thai curries or Pad Thai. Pretty much your typical Thai dishes.

The restaurant is situated in the upper level of a building. Once you head upstairs, the restaurant is quite big. Lots of seating room. You have regular private tables and long communal tables. We were seated at one of the long communal tables.

APPETIZER

Beef Satay – $6.00**

“Grilled beef on a skewer with peanut dipping sauce.”

The beef was cooked nicely. It had a hint of char to it; the meat was not dry and not too chewy. The peanut dipping sauce complemented it well. It worked with the spice that the beef was cooked with.

 

 

ENTREE

Khao Soi with Chicken – $10.75**
“Egg noodles, chicken breast or beef slices, bean sprout, shallot, dried shrimp, pickled mustard greens, & lime in our coconut curry soup”

With a coconut curry soup, for a cold day, this really hit the spot. It was comforting. The egg noodles were cooked well and a decent amount of chicken filled the bowl. I do remember tasting a hint of lime in the soup.

 

 

Golden Curry with Chicken – $11.00**
“Broccoli, onions, bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms & bay leaf in Thai yellow curry with coconut milk, tamarind, palm sugar & Thai herbs.”

Out of the two dishes, this was my favourite. The curry had a nice viscosity to it. It wasn’t runny but a good thickness. It was a bit creamy, which I prefer, and it wasn’t too spicy. We also got it gluten free because I might have a gluten sensitivity 🙁 This dish was also served with steamed white rice.

You can also taste the tamarind in this dish. With that and the palm sugar, the curry did have a slight sweetness and tang to it. Also, vegetables soaked in curry is always a good thing, so I loved that there was an abundance of vegetables.

 

DRINKS

Thai Iced Tea

Highly recommend getting this drink. It was nicely sweet and creamy and complemented the dishes quite nicely.

 

 

 

My first visit to Salad King was a good one and I hope to one day go back and try more items on the menu!

Want a piece of this? It's really cheesy 🍰
⠀
In 2015, I went to Sugar Marmalade went it first opened in Mississauga. I wasn't impressed with it. Four years later, my opinion hasn't changed at my second visit. Check out my quick review in my IG Stories.

It's the long weekend 🇨🇦—Let's par-tea! 🎉 ⠀
Earlier this week I finally got to try @thealley.ca in Toronto. Since it was my first visit, I decided to order the Deerioca. This drink is made with brown sugar instead of white. Make sure you mix it (Swipe ⏩) before drinking it, otherwise the brown sugar will only settle at the bottom. You also have the option of choosing regular milk or soy milk.
⠀
It wasn't bad but the brown sugar didn't give me the sweetness I'm used to. It did taste familiar to a non-bubble tea drink. But I wouldn't mind going back to try a different drink to compare to other bubble tea places.

If you have any recommendations, leave it in the comments :)

Yolks on you if you don't order the Spaghetti Carbonara from @scaddabush!
⠀
My go-to order is usually the Roasted Fennel & Sausage Fettuccine but yesterday I decided to try something different. I went for the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was delish! 😋
⠀
It was creamy and full of flavour. I also don't like bacon (Don't @ me!) but thus was bearable for me. It was a bit too oily near the bottom of the dish, so make sure you mix it well!
⠀
And if you're sharing this dish, go for the social size option—it's cheaper when splitting the bill! 😉
