Last Monday, super-popular Thai restaurant Sukhothai opened its much-anticipated second location at Wellington Street East, just west of Church, after much success with its sister restaurant, Khao San Road.

House specialties include the savoury-sweet Thai iced tea ($4) and the always-addictive shrimp chips with tamarind dip ($5), but this week’s cheap eat is the guaytiaw soup ($9), a bowl of noodle soup that’s a staple street food dish in Thailand and is not unlike Vietnamese pho or Chinese rice noodle soup.

At Sukhothai, it’s a light soup broth with rice noodles and a choice of chicken, beef, tofu or shrimp (for $1 extra). It’s topped with a healthy dose of bean sprouts, coriander and green onions — crisp, clean and light. Make it a guaytiaw Sukhothai for $10, a “Sukh’ed”-up Northern Thai version of the guaytiaw with hot sauce and peanuts.

Sukhothai, 52 Wellington St. E. 647-351-4612
