Salad King’s renowned chili scale lets patrons customize their own spice level. Choose one chili (Nice), or five (Watch out!), or even 20 (Can get stomach upset). However, some dishes are better served mild, and servers will advise patrons on recommended intensities.
Salad King is famous for its homemade curry sauces. Its green curry dishes, either chicken or beef, is an absolute must try. Cubes of meat are served with crispy veggies — broccoli, snap peas, bell pepper and peas — all simmered in Thai curry and creamy, coconut milk. Phud Thai is also a garnered favourite and Kari noodle, a Phud Thai with curry sauce, is a great alternative.
A Lighter Fare
For those looking for a lighter meal or who want a mid-day snack, try a mango salad. It’s made with fresh mango, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, and served with fish sauce, lime juice, palm sugar and peanut dressing. For something hot, try one of the authentic-style soups. Ton Yum, or Hot and Sour Mushroom, boasts mushrooms, coriander, Thai herbs and lime juice in a chicken and shrimp based spicy soup.
Dubbed as one of Toronto’s Best Thai Restuarants by NOW Magazine, Salad King is located across the street from Ryerson University and a Toronto landmark: the Sam the Record Man store. In the heart of the commercial core, Salad King is never shy of customers. Reservations are strongly recommended and it’s best to call ahead for take-out orders.
