Reinvigorated by new management, the chefs at Cafe Milagro’s prepare a menu of traditional Thai fare interspersed with Western dishes. Diners can begin meals with an appetizer such as Lisa’s Special platter, an assemblage of two spring rolls, two chicken wings, battered mushrooms, onions, calamari, and fried shrimp. After digestion has been properly synced with compatriots, incisors sink into classic Asian dishes ranging from chicken pad thai to ginger-spiced curries steeping seasonal vegetables, baby corn, and tofu. Alternatively, diners may opt for lemon-pepper chicken fettuccine or an 8-ounce AAA Angus striploin, each packing enough protein to fuel a post-dinner tire-punching contest.
Within the Cafe Milagro's kitchen, red and green curries simmer in pots alongside woks of sizzling stir-fries, sending the aroma of ginger and lemongrass wafting into the casual dining room. Chef Lisa and her kitchen staff bustle about stoves, adding sprigs of lime leaves and dashes of chilies to dishes to procure authentic Thai flavours. Their vast repertoire of meat, seafood, and tofu dishes ranges from tangy pad thai to spicy tofu curry to savoury fried noodles. The chefs extend their diverse culinary expertise to Western favourites such as pork tenderloin and barbecue ribs served with a side of money salad.
