Parkdale is one of the most diverse and liveliest neighbourhoods in the city. You can find almost anything and everything from the famous vegan Big Mac to the juiciest Tibetan momo. In the midst of all the overwhelming culinary options is Miss Thing’s, serving some of the best fusion Hawaiian food in Toronto.
Miss Thing’s is a luxury tropical gem at the edge of Parkdale—minus the luxury prices. From the outside, the restaurant is very unassuming with its green flat walls, simple vinyl sign and pineapples on the two front doors. There is an automatic door opener for the front door which measures 34" wide and opens to a built-in ramp where at the top of the ramp a second door measures 37” to enter the restaurant.
Once indoors you are welcomed by bright tropical flowers painted across the walls, gold accents shining throughout the entire dining area and wooden bars and tabletops to warm up the space. The dining area is spacious with minimal seating so it's best to call and reserve in advance if possible. There is a mixture of high tops to the left and regular dining tables to the right. The dining tables are wooden and measure at a standard height of 28".
The menu is family style. I came with my coworkers and we shared a variety of delicious dishes. My favourite was most definitely the pineapple fried rice and the tempura corn fritters were also a hit.
An accessible washroom is available but is typically locked to ensure it is always available for guests who need it most—speak with the manager or your server to get it unlocked. The door measures 35" with a knob handle door that opens in. There are two grab bars measuring 30” wide along the side and 38” wide behind the toilet. The sink is 30" high and the paper towel and soap are easy to reach.
If you are commuting by subway, Miss Thing’s is only a few blocks from Dufferin Street where you can catch the 29 Dufferin bus. The 47 Lansdowne is another good option but a block further. Although Miss Thing’s is conveniently located on Queen St., the 501 Queen streetcar is not accessible. If you are driving, there is Green P parking lot at the corner of Queen Street and Cowan Ave, a block west of Miss Thing’s.
