Tropical tiki bar Miss Thing’s moves into Parkdale
Looks like the Bovine Sex Club doesn’t have Queen West’s tiki bar scene all to itself anymore: Miss Thing’s, a Pan Asian restaurant and cocktail bar under the same ownership as next-door neighbour Wrongbar, has opened in Parkdale. There, chefs Jasper Wu (from Bent) and Paul Hadian (from Momofuku) are turning out their take on Polynesian dishes—raw conch with mango and jicama, Spam pintxos, steak with coconut rice and lobster ramen—to go with bar manager Reed Pettit‘s (from Miller Tavern) tropical cocktails, like the Toucan Sam Shake made with rummy Froot Loop milk. As for the space itself, it’s Hawaii meets mid-century hotel lobby. Currently, the bar is open for dinner and drinks from 5 p.m.–2 a.m., Wednesday to Sunday.

Superb… Jasper Wu has some skills
We dined there last night and it was excellent. We were particularly impressed by the service – knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We trusted our server’s recommendations, as some of the menu items appeared to be a bit outside our comfort zone, and we were glad we did! The “spam” dish (see what I mean?) didn’t appear to be that appetizing, but it sure was tasty, as were the coconut shrimp, perfectly cooked chicken wings and the amazing lobster bisque ramen dish. We will definitely be back.
