Pad thai is so named because of its inherent softness, which is also why it's used to stuff the mattresses of the world's richest kings. Fall into a pillow of flavour with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Thai cuisine at Sawaddee Bistro downtown.
Sawaddee Bistro spices palates with authentic Thai cuisine and picturesque presentations of its traditional and reimagined recipes. Ease into a filling meal with the lovingly assembled tum som papaya salad ($4.95) or slurp up a bowl of tom kai gai soup enlivened with chicken, mushroom, lemongrass, and ginger root to lob tongues a fragrant flavour smack ($9.95). The green curry softly infuses a choice of chicken, beef, or pork with zucchini and basil ($12), and the phad nam pik pro decadently coats mussels in onions, basil, and sweet chili-oil sauce ($14.95). Save room for the mango sliced cheesecake with ice cream and coconut sauce that fills stomachs with sugary-sweet dessert kisses so delectable the mouth never had a chance to woo them ($4.95).
At Sawaddee Bistro, curries brighten tables with saturated reds, greens, and yellows. While the instinct may be to finger-paint with these brilliant sauces, they impart just as much colour to palates. So does the rest of the menu of traditional Thai noodle-and-rice dishes such as pad thai and sweet-and-sour pork. The restaurant itself is intimate, with mostly two- and four-top tables scattered between green accent walls, stone columns, and a single flourishing palm tree.
