Way back when the sun didn't set at 5 p.m., I was lucky enough to be invited to a tasting for Pintoh cuisine.
Pintoh is a new restaurant in downtown Burlington. Their focus is on authentic Thai food - not the Canadianized dishes we so often eat here in Canada. From what I've seen, they've succeeded, and the food was delicious.
The drinks are much fun. One of my favs, the Pintoh sour, changed colour while tasting delicious - and as a science teacher, I love examples of neutralization reactions in real life. The white sangria was also delicious and highly recommended.
There are so many vegetarian options on the menu, and I enjoyed them all, including the ones I didn't think I would. I am not a curry fan. Yes, yes, I know all vegetarians are supposed to love curry, but I don't. I do, however, believe in trying everything put in front of me,so I did and I was so pleasantly surprised.
The food was fresh. Crunchy, fun to eat and tasty. As my good friend (because I watch her on TV, so we are besties in my head) Mary Berry would say, they went down a treat.
In summary - this is some really terrific Thai food. Perfect for a date night. Highly recommended, it's definitely worth the drive into Burlington.
