Walking down Lonsdale Street in Braddon today (as one does) I noticed the Ploy Thai restaurant and with the promise of an $8 deal how could I resist?
Curry puffs come extra at a dollar a throw and with a can of coke I had lunch and a drink for a mere $11.
I should have had two curry puffs. They were seriously good. Warm, fluffy, tasty and light.
The chicken and basil and jungle curry were decent if not great. On a good day Rice is better. But Rice on a bad day is awful. These guys have a feeling of consistency about them.
It was lovely sitting by the window watching Braddon go by.
The food was hot enough to get me breaking a sweat without detracting from the taste or being uncomfortable (cue several Pakistans worth of Droning from bores who live on hot sauce and broken glass about how it’s not spicy at all).
It’s not stellar. But it is a very nice cheap lunch. Worth a go if you’re in the neighbourhood.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
