Spice City Toronto: Gourmet Satay Offers Up Classic Malaysian Cuisine

Dishes at the new Scarborough restaurant are carefully prepared and packed with flavour.

One of the absolute best Southeast Asian restaurants in the Toronto area is Gourmet Malaysia, an oversized dining hall in Scarborough with a massive menu of Malaysian, Indonesian, and Singaporean favourites. In September, the owners opened a new spin-off restaurant called Gourmet Satay at 1348 Kennedy Road near Ellesmere Road in Scarborough.

Although the restaurant hasn’t yet had its official opening, fans of Gourmet Malaysia have noticed the similar sign at this dodgy strip mall on Kennedy and started popping by. The narrow restaurant features many of the same dishes as Gourmet Malaysia, but owner Amy Lim wants to add some specialty “hawker” or street food dishes here soon.

Happy Halloween, everyone! Don a costume today if only to pretend for an evening that the past week hasn't happened. We certainly will. Before you do that, though, read some news! Rob Ford's tumour hasn't shrunk (but it also hasn't grown), the TDSB will see plenty of new faces, Ontario's proposed worker protection legislation leaves temporary workers behind, and an inside look at Jian Ghomeshi's firing from the CBC.

Halloween is tomorrow―this means only one more day of having to suffer through that annoying Village People–themed Value Village radio commercial. We may not have costumes, but we sure do have some news for you: The provincial government aims to cap executive salaries at public sector agencies, a Trailer Park Boys actress accuses Jian Ghomeshi of sexual violence, paramedics concerned over lack of Ebola preparedness training are ordered back to work, and a woman is seriously injured after falling onto the 401.
