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!

I don't like olives—leaf me alone! 🥬
⠀
Salads don't really fill up my stomach, so I rarely order them as my main entrée. However, when I am looking for something light, I'll order one.
⠀
When I took @xstephanieeee and @alavia to @3brasseursca before one of the Duke Canada basketball games, I got this pasta salad. I forgot the name of this dish but it's on the lunch menu. I'm not a fan of olives and I knew they'd be in this salad, but I figured it'd be just a few olives. Boy, was I wrong! This was like an olive dump!
⠀
If you don't like olives, I'd highly avoid this particular pasta salad.

Call me irrational for posting a non-pi(e) photo on Pi Day.

Throwback to last July at the Burlington Food Truck festival. Since they were featured on 'You Gotta Eat Here!', I tried the Pulled Pork Beanasaurus from Sul Irmaos Smokehouse.
⠀
As you can tell, it's a sandwich with mess written all over it. It was stacked with pulled pork, chili, coleslaw, and fried mac and cheese bites. Taste-wise, it was okay. The fried mac and cheese bites placed on top didn't elevate the sandwich as I hoped it would. It didn't provide the cheesiness I wanted it to.
