Alice Thai is a cute little place on East Row. There are elephant themed wall hangings and they’ve got oil burners pumping a strong smell of incense into the air.
More importantly they run an $8.90 lunch menu.
Meals are made to order but my pad thai was done in a couple of minutes.
You don’t get prawns in a sub $10 lunch, but you do get big hunks of chicken and lots of egg cooked in as well as mung beans, peanuts and shallots.
For mine the noodles were a touch watery and fishy tasting, better pad thai’s of my experience sell in the $13-15 range.
The $8.90 menu covers 13 choices so there’s plenty to try.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
