Eat: The Friendly Thai

A few weeks ago, I had a catch-up lunch with a dear friend, Grace (please visit her wonderful blog!) at The Friendly Thai, a local Thai restaurant in our neighbourhood of Leslieville.

When it comes to Thai restaurants, I have my clear favourites and judge hard if a restaurant has two types of Pad Thai where one is listed as “authentic”.

We had a nice, quiet lunch to talk and laugh about random things and our server was extremely nice and accommodating. While we eventually became the only diners in the restaurant, I couldn’t help notice that the cooks were also having lunch one table over ours. A bit of a faux pas…
