A while back I got some not great take-out from Hot&Spice at the corner of Danforth and Monarch Park. Another Chowhound suggested I give it another try and finally returning last night I saw that there is now new management/ownership, still Thai.
The dinner was great. The chefs are Thai...and the food tasted different (as in better) from what you get at most places where they do that "pan-asian" thing -- flavours were a bit sharper/distinctive. For example, while I do like ketchup in my pad thai, there was none here, only the sweet-sour from tamarind as far as I could tell.
There is now another worthy destination in the foodie wasteland of eastern Danforth. Check it out.
