The King & I Thai Restaurant

On November 17 the dinner club went adventuring into Thai cuisine at The King & I. There were a total of 9 people, 6 celiacs and 3 celiac supporters, and the food was enjoyed by all. The King & I gave us a chance to enjoy a meal with shared plates that everyone could enjoy (a rare treat for a Celiac). Eric, the manager, chose a few selections from the menu for us to share, although there are many more options that can be made celiac friendly. For starters we enjoyed the beef & chicken satay dishes with a delicious peanut sauce for dipping (I definitely recommend these) and the salad rolls. We then had coconut rice, Chu Chu Kai (a chicken dish), Pork Tenderloin with Sweet & Sour Chili Sauce, Beef with Basil & Bean sprouts in a black pepper sauce (a little spicy), Pad Kra Pao Kung (Prawns & Basil) and a mixed vegetable dish served in peanut sauce. We were all stuffed to the brim by the end of the evening, and there was even enough left over for Jayson to have lunch & dinner the next day (everybody else was too full to consider eating anymore at anytime).

The King & I is located at 8208 107 Street (just off of Whyte Ave behind Crankpots).
