Rice is a new player in Garema Place, up the stairs in the Impact Comics / Redpaths neck of the woods.
They’ve got an intriguing looking Thai / Tapas menu and market themselves as a Tapas bar.
But they also do a $7 lunch box.
Climbing the stairs there’s a bloke standing behind a bain marie booth.
There’s a choice of fried rice, boiled rice, or noodles as the base and then quite a selection of dishes.
I went for the lemon pork and mongolian lamb.
Pretty good for $7.
Just don’t be afraid of climbing those stairs.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
