What do you feel like eating? Chances are you’ll find it near Collingwood these days as the range of dining options has really expanded over the last few years.
One of my favourite spots for lunch is the Siamese Gecko located on the west side of Hurontario Street between 3rd and 4th streets in downtown Collingwood. Friends who have traveled to Asia swear it’s the most authentic Thai food they have tasted outside of Thailand itself and all say it’s among the best they’ve had.
It’s a rather unpretentious spot with a relatively plain décor and casual but friendly staff. The food is incredible with a marriage of flavours that makes me want to go back again and again.
The Som Tum salad is crunchy and sweet with a tiny kick and in my books, a must with each meal and, it’s large enough to share. The Pad Thai is too sweet for my tastes but I know my lunch mates rave about it while I eat jasmine rice along with the most delectable dish of chicken and sweet potatoes bathed in a mild yellow curry and coconut sauce that makes me want to lick out the bowl. Actually, I’ve never gotten to the bottom of the bowl as the portions are so generous I always ending up taking some home to share.
The Siamese Gecko is licensed and open for lunch and dinner.
