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).

Green pea pods (also known as English, garden or sweet peas) are technically fruits, while the peas themselves are seeds that fall in the legume category. Ontario green pea season is short: it starts in June and only goes through July. If we’re lucky, it may trickle into August.
