Drink This: Sabai Sabai’s Thai mojito

The city’s latest hotspot for Thai cuisine is Church Street’s Sabai Sabai. Inside, against a hodgepodge of memorabilia from the motherland, chef Nuit Regular’s patrons mow down on lesser-seen Thai favourites such as morning glory stir-fry and fried fish in tamarind sauce.

A short but sweet cocktail list also pays homage to eastern flavours. We sipped on the so-called Thai mojito. Available by the glass or the pitcher ($8/$32), the beverage layers lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, mint and coconut sugar syrup with Appleton Estate dark rum.

With Songkran — a.k.a. Thai New Year — right around the corner, this is a way to celebrate that doesn't involve water fights (not that we're opposed to the idea).

They opened a larger production facility in Leaside and in 2013 added the sprawling BrewHouse on Queen’s Quay. This spring they completed a significant expansion to the Leaside facility, so I caught up with McOustra to talk about what this means for one of Toronto’s most important craft breweries.
