It’s a Parkdale Luau at Miss Thing’s this month

Tiki bar hosting one-night only dinner packed with adventurous off-menu eats


A wave of Hawaiian food (groan) is sweeping Toronto – most notably in the form of poke, the chopped-fish dish which has eleventeen dedicated restaurants to its name in the city. But Miss Thing’s, a tiki-inspired bar that took over the front room of Wrongbar last year, was among the first to get that trend rolling (they even did poke first).

If you haven’t been by and sampled their NOW-approved cocktails and eats, now’s the time: Miss Thing’s chef, Jasper Wu (formerly of Bent), is going off-menu with a one-night-only pop-up dinner on October 12. The event, dubbed Parkdale Luau, will feature five courses, running the gamut from pineapple vinegar-spiked squid ceviche to a decidedly more Canadian elk carpaccio rubbed with espresso. Coconut-curry mussels with black noodles, pork lettuce wraps, pomegranate-glazed tempura cauliflower and a pineapple semifreddo round things out. Tickets, including drinks, tax and tip, are $65 all-in at U-Feast.
