You may notice a similarity between today’s post and my previous one. After writing the Sukkothai post, I thought to myself, now would be a good time to do a post on Bangkok Thai. After all, they are only about three blocks away from each other. Bangkok Thai restaurant sits on the corner of River Avenue and Osborne street. It exists on the second floor of a mixed-use building. I went there many years ago. I think it is close…Continue readingBangkok Thai Restaurant – Osborne Village
While you may think, judging from my last three posts, that I been living on nothing beyond fried chicken, there are other restaurants I’ve been watching. One of these is Sukkothai restaurant, in Osborne village. Sukkothai Thai restaurant, is one of those places that I visited years ago, before my blogging days.

Real cold.…Continue readingLittle Bangkok Thai, Shawarma Fusion
I recently did an update visit to Shaba Thai, for a column I’m writing for The West End Streets.
One thing I like about the West End, is that it is ever changing, while still maintaining it’s overall character.Continue readingShaba Thai – Portage Avenue.
Tom Yum Thai is one of those restaurants I’ve often passed, but never entered. As a bus rider, I find that getting to North of Portage, from where I live in the West End, back to North of Portage on Main is often as a trip, as convoluted as this sentence. As a result, I generally walk when I go to such places as Stephanchew’s Church Goods, or to visit the Exchange District.Being on the corner of Sherbrook and William,…Continue readingTom Yum Thai – Sherbrook Street
