Friday. Went downtown for a presentation.
Finished some work, and went back up for lunch.
Felt like it was a reward time for ourselves.
Today we came to this place near First Markham Place.
It’s a Thai restaurant, called “Star of Thai Cuisine” (泰萊軒）
When you’re driving on Hwy 7, facing West,
you’ll see the bright yellow restaurant name besides the Kinko’s and Blind to Go.
There was a Chinese restaurant called 大城小聚.
But I’ve never been there. Maybe it was the location.
Surprisingly, there were quite a lot of patrons in the restaurants when we came in.
The walls are in pastel yellow, with some traditional Thai deco.
The first thing I noticed was its fork and spoon.
Look at them, aren’t they huge?!
We pictured ourselves as the knights in the medieval times…
With huge forks and spoons and all the silvery utensils. lol
What I ordered was the lunch special ($8.95),
which came with the soup of the day…
and 2 choices from the selections of “delicacies” (as it was stated on the menu)
The soup was actually pretty good.
Haven’t had any creamy soup since I stopped working downtown.
(I used to get some extremely creamy chowder soups at lunch.)
So, I took out my camera and took a picture of this half-finished soup.
Um… the color is also yellow, which matches the whole theme.
It was a chilli creamy pumpkin soup with a hint of coconut favour.
Really like it.
The entree I choose was the pineapple beef + curry veggie w/ rice.
It was so-so. The beef was actually a bit cool (I mean “not hot”).
The portion is a bit small for a big guy. (For me, just right)
I can say, I’ll deduct a lot of marks because of the entree.
Some other comments would be..。
– The waiting time for the entree was a bit too long.
– The space between table was a bit too tight. Since the tables and chairs and all the utensils were quite big, it would be much better if they could leave more space in between tables.
