Hello Again Beautiful People!
My husband and I recently dined at a cozy family owned restaurant in the trendy Ossington Ave and Queen St. West neighbourhood, Toronto, named Soos. The staff were warm and welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxed, the décor was vibrant and the music was energetic. Soos restaurant conceptualizes the “modern interpretation of Malaysian street food”; and with that said, we had the “Say What?!” moment – the deer staring in the headlight kind a look. We were not familiar with the menu choices, nor how to pronounce the names; however, the server did an excellent job informing us what to expect in taste, texture and she also gave us a quick pronunciation tutorial.
The food was bursting with flavours and textures! We started with Keropok (kerr-OH-pock): this is a house made prawn crackers, complimented with the Soos peanut sauce. My husband’s main course was Laksa, (lag-sa), which is chicken, prawn, tofu ball, falangal, mee, vermicelli and curry broth. I feasted on the Char Kway Teow (char-way-ow): this is tiger prawns, chives, sambal, beansprout, egg drop and charred rice fettuccine.
Thanks for stopping by the blog! It is always exciting to hear from you. Go out and enjoy your season’s socials and feel confident when it comes to pronouncing those delicious appetizers.
