Hi guys! it’s Sarah here trying for the 1,000 time to publish a successful food review! lol
Now, my Double Date guests are a couple I met on FaceBook! Michael is a trusted friend for quite some time and he arrived in Toronto to visit me with his GORGEOUS wife Luana, a brazillian beauty!
Because I tell him all of the time how much I love this small place down the street called SABAI SABAI & drinks, he FINALLY came to town! What a friend!
Patrick wondered about this strange dude that his girl talks to all the time! Always the bodyguard, Patrick and I approached the table cautiously with me smiling like a fool! Seeing my friend Michel in person rocked my world and meeting his superstar wife was brilliant.
After introductions, we ordered. We decided on getting several tapas style sharable dishes to begin with. One Masaman curry with perfectly prepared shrimp delicious gravy, and some red peppers – $7; some sticky rice – $3. Now, this curry dish is too spicy or my palate, however Luana practically devoured it! Michael then ordered our FAVOURITE dish Kal Soi with egg noodles and super tender chunks of beef, curry, veg, and for presentation sake some FLASHED FRIED noodles which gave the dish height, drama, and excitement! 8-11$ :D
To test his heat tolerance, I ordered what is usually the hottest dish on the menu, their Green Mango salad. With Thai Bird chilies and Habanero ones too secretly mixed in to the mélange, Michael claimed that it was not spicy whatsoever… We knew the truth though!
Dessert changes regularly but ranges between $5-7 and have some Thai flavor too, lemongrass frequently takes a staring roll.
In the end, we ordered half the menu many alcoholic drinks at 5-6$ each the total was still under $120 including tax and tip!
Split between 4 people we say, it is THE spot you should check the next time you are trying to make reservations.
Tip from me to you: call ahead because it gets busy! Order as much as you can! ;-)
