“We are “LITTLE SISTER” a casual Indonesian Food Bar with an unpretentious laid back atmosphere located Mid town Toronto.”
This small laid back spot at Yonge and Davisville is serving up some awesome Indonesian food snack style. Their sharing style menu gives you the opportunity to try almost every dish and experience new and spicy flavorful combos.
The space has a cool boisterous vibe with an open style kitchen towards the back, and a cool mix of intimate banquet seating and a two large communal tables. There is a kind of rustic meets eclectic feel with the menus printed on cardboard squares, bold printed wall paper and quirky retro lights.
Now onto the food. The beauty of a sharing style menu is that you get to have a little taste of everything. Never having eaten Indonesian food I wasn’t sure what to expect and didn’t recognize any of the dishes on the menu but big, bold spicy flavours is definitely what I got.
First up was the shrimp lettuce wrap. Crunchy fresh lettuce filled with tender shrimp, pickled cucumber, crispy shallots and topped with the chili sambal sauce.
Then onto what they call, Satay Ayam, chicken skewers with a creamy peanut sauce.
My favourite dish of the night was the Ayam Panngang , sweet chili grilled chicken on top of a crunchy slaw of bean sprouts, green onion and cilantro. You could taste the layers of the flavour building that they created getting nodes of spicy and sweet in every bite.
Runner up was the fried cauliflower salad that had a range of complex flavours and textures. There was crunch coming from the puffed rice and crispy cooked shallots and a brightness from the green onions.
And just because we wanted a little something extra, we got the Pangsit, crunchy wontons filled with beef and a chili lime sauce on the side.
If you’re convinced visit them in person!
