Khao San Road on Charlotte Street

 Fresh Rolls

Khao San Road located at 11 Charlotte St in Toronto

June 29, 2018:  I had dined at the original location of Khao San Road a few years ago but this was my first time dining here at the new location since they moved.  This new location on Charlotte Street was so discreet to me that I probably wouldn’t have known that it housed the popular Thai restaurant Khao San Road if I was just walking by on my own.  

This location is livelier and has more character in the way that it’s decorated inside.  It was really nice.

There were actually a lot of people there already by 5:30 p.m.

Arriving here at 5:30 p.m., we got a table for two at one of their high communal tables.  I ordered the Fresh Rolls as I wasn’t too hungry while Daphne ordered the Pad See Ew Guay Tiaw noodles.  We also ordered the popular Squash Fritters to share.  I remembered trying that appetizer on my first visit to the original location of Khao San Road as I had heard great things about it back then.

Fresh Rolls

Fresh Rolls. $10.95
-housemade chicken sausage, lettuce, carrot, thai basil, mint, rice paper, chili tamarind sauce, fresh roasted peanuts

The Fresh Rolls arrived first.  Housemade chicken sausage was wrapped with lettuce, carrot, Thai basil, and mint with rice paper into individual pre-cut rolls.  There was a container of chili tamarind sauce topped with fresh roasted peanuts that accompanied the dish.

This was a very refreshing and simple roll.  I liked that it tasted light and I didn’t need to dip much of the sauce for the rolls to taste good.

The Squash Fritters were made with kabocha squash, wild ginger, lemongrass, fresh makrut lime leaves, red curry, and egg.  It was as crispy as I remembered and as tangled as I remembered.  It’s such a good appetizer for sharing.

Daphne’s order of the Pad See Ew contained wide rice noodles, Chinese broccoli, egg, garlic, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and with a substitution of beef instead of the original options of chicken, veggies and tofu, or veggies.

We didn’t stay very long after we were done our food as it became more difficult to hear each other over the table as more people had showed up after 6 p.m.

The service here was pleasant.  Their washrooms are on the upstairs level which unfortunately makes it not accessible for everybody.
