Gold Winner Cha Baa Thai Restaurant, Halifax
Silver Winner Wasabi House
Bronze Winner Piatto Pizzeria + Enoteca
You may have noticed that we live in an age where sandwiches cost $10, sans side. And as a society, people seem to be mostly OK with it. Or at the very least complacent and hungry. Queen Street’s Cha Baa Thai? Not so much. The multiple award-winning spot (see Best Thai Restaurant) doesn’t only serve up a wide variety of noodles and curries and spring rolls and soups, but it’s knocking the mid-day meal out of the park. Green curry, cashew chicken, barbecue duck and spicy prawn (plus rice and spring roll, PS) are among the dishes that’ll cost you a cool $11.50 weekdays from 11:30am to 3pm. That avocado sandwich isn’t looking so hot now, is it?
