Recipe: Thai Chicken & Rice Khao Soi (curry)

It’s winter and all I can think about is filling myself with warm and delicious soups! If you’re in Toronto you may want to head down to The Cantina by Campbell’s — a pop-up restaurant (501 Queen Street West) that is now open to the public and is serving FREE soup until February 21st!

Chef Matt Dean Pettit (yes, from Rock Lobster) will be stopping in the restaurant to do demos and we’re pretty excited!

We’ve been seriously drooling over the new recipes offered at and this one caught our attention…
