Respond to Review of ChuChai

Review: Some people say it is not authentic Thai food. Who cares? Thai food is full of fish sauce and shrimp paste anyway! We went to Chuchai on our last night in Montreal. It was no cheap but it was really tasty and a great experience altogether. They have menus in English and French which were very convenient for us. We started with the curry puffs and the deep fried seaweed in a sweet and spicy sauce. The curry puffs were nice enough but looked and tasted more or less like samosas. On the other hand, the seaweed dish was amazing! Then we had the fake chicken with peanut sauce and fried spinach. That was so delicious. The spinach was also a bit sweet and unlike anything I tasted before. Very delicate flavours. We also had some red curry which was great too. The sticky rice is absolutely perfect. Our dishes rated 2 on the scale of 3 for spiciness but we did not find then spicy at all. We were told that they do not use dairy or eggs in the cooking, but still use milk in coffee and honey in desserts so it is not yet a vegan restaurant but hopefully they will move to. Totally worth trying in Montreal.
