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 $20, you get $40 worth of Thai fare at Tom Yam Goong Thai Cuisine in Kanata.
Tom Yam Goong Thai Cuisine delivers a crowded menu of elegantly presented authentic Thai dishes. Steaming bowls of coconut and milk-laden tom gar gai soup ($4.95) plunk down on dark wood tables and fly spoonward into the mouths of hungry diners, regardless of whether they've been naughty or nice this year. While curry brings heat to taste buds with dishes such as the beef and chicken keang keawan ($13.95), lively stir-fry feasts invade plates with crisp delights that include pad med mamuang ($12.95), in which the guest's choice of protein is joined by fresh veggies, pineapple, and dried chili topped with cashews. Meals can be capped with hard-to-resist desserts such as homemade deep-fried cheesecake ($5.95) or 16 varieties of bubble tea as patrons enjoy the ambience of traditional Thai decor that includes intricate coloured wall hangings, handsome statuettes, and authentic Thai teleportation hammocks.
