I have wanted to come to Chuchai since months ago. I know it’s kind of silly to want to eat Thai food here at Montreal when San Francisco has plenty of options too, but it’s one of those things I just can’t explain…
Firstly, Chuchai isn’t just a Thai restaurant. It’s actually a vegetarian one which made it much more interesting as one of my parent’s been nagging me (out of love, of course) to go vegetarian for a while now. And probably very happy to hear that I have been eating so healthfully on this trip.
Going to Chuchai is a bit of a chore. First of all, the bus that I was suppose to take only operates during peak hours, and like an idiot, I was waiting for it at 3 p.m. because I didn’t understand the french words.
So I ended up going back to my hotel and taking a taxi to the restaurant. I also ended up taking a taxi back to the hotel because I couldn’t find the metro at night. So I ended up actually spending more money on taxi rides than on food. Lol.
These are what I had for dinner. The food was delicious…
- La Griffintown Montrealaise (Ale Blonde 5% alcoh.) – pairs really well with the slightly too-salty veg. duck & basil.
- Vegetarian Samosa
- Vegetarian tom yum khung soup with coconut milk
- Vegetarian duck with basil
