Had lunch at Queen Mother Cafe along Queen St. West. At first, I thought we had made a bad choice. The place looked dingy and the decor was devoid of identity. The no smoking sign says "No Fumar" so I was expecting Mexican.
Then I was thrown off by the menu which featured Thai and other southeast Asian items alongside whole wheat penne and turkey burger. I finished skimming the menu and I was still at a loss as to how to classify this place.
Anyway, I ordered the Ping Gai, a crispy grilled chicken breast served with rice and a sweet-sour-salty dipping sauce of lime and coriander. It was very, very good. No wonder the place filled up so fast a little after 12:00.
My friend had the Pad Thai and she liked it as well, although I thought they were too generous with the sauce.
Prices are reasonable ($10 for the Ping Gai and $9 for the Pad Thai) and servings are generous. Definitely a keeper.
