I have to admit, in Toronto, we’re somewhat spoiled with the restaurant choices we have. Mat and I have a favourite called Mengrai Gourmet Thai and there’s a reason we love going there. They are incredibly accommodating and understand what vegan and gluten free means. We’ve had the cold salad rolls – ask for no sauce on top for gluten free, lemongrass coconut soup, pad thai, green curry, glass noodles, and lately Thai Spicy Flat Rice Noodles (which are not on the menu only the take out version!).
The lemongrass coconut soup is pretty fab and I’ve taken it one step further by adding glass noodles to the equation. Seriously, try this. It’s beyond delicious and it works with a side of rice just as well if you’re not a glass noodle fan. You’ll have to explain you want a meal size and not the appetizer.
The waiters are incredibly helpful and will not hesitate to help you with your meal choices if you describe what you’re in the mood for. We’ve been quite a few times and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a classy tasty meal.
