Newtown Thai-Sydney

Thai food for lunch is super cheap in Sydney! In Vancouver, I would say HK style cafes and Taiwanese cafes are considered inexpensive and there it’s Thai food. Newtown Thai is situated in the Newtown suburb and it’s very close to the University of Sydney as well.

Newtown Thai offers most of their lunch dishes for around $8-10 each and if you get a combo for $12, you also get a can of pop and a small appetizer/side dish as well.

Pictured above we have the Pad See Ew which is stir fried thick flat rice noodles with egg and Chinese broccoli. You also have a choice of protein for this and some proteins cost more than others such as seafood. Flavour wise it was pretty good but a little heavy on the soy sauce. Portion wise, for some reason it was smaller than the Pad Thai I had below.

Bai Bua Thai-Affordable Thai

A few weeks ago the Royal Family Circus was in town and my friends and I got cheap tickets on Groupon! It was only $15 each so that was a great deal for a night of entertainment. They were set up on the PNE fair grounds so we went to Bai Bua Thai on E. Hastings and Nanaimo for dinner first. It’s right across from the 95 B-line stop.

Milestones-Broadway

I’ve passed by Milestones on Broadway and Cambie a lot and it always looked nice but I’d never been inside before. Okay to be fair I haven’t been in a few years anyway. The restaurant is on the second floor and It’s actually really open and spacious inside with the usual dim lighting and many TV’s with sports games on. My friend had a gift card that she needed to use so she invited me to come along with her.

I went on a Tuesday and Original Bellini’s are 50% off! A classic, sweet girly drink for me with not much alcohol! They also have an Ultimate Bellini which is 3 ounces instead of 2. Read more

Kin Kao Thai Kitchen

In my attempt to explore Commercial Drive more, I dragged my friends to Kin Kao Thai Kitchen.

The restaurant was smaller than I expected but seats about 30 people. The menus are presented on a wooden clipboard and I like the wood theme they have going on for the tables and chairs. Very minimalistic. We sat by the windows so it was nice and bright too.  Read more

Sawasdee Thai

It was about time that I got my hands on some Thai food which I clearly don’t eat often enough! We arrived at Sawasdee Thai for lunch and they were understaffed so we had to wait 10 mins for a table even though they had tables but they weren’t cleared and there were only two servers working.

Since we had to wait for a table, we spent our time deciding what to order. All their lunch specials are under $10 and come with a spring roll and a skewer. They are also closed for lunch on Mondays.

Bob Likes Thai Food

I’ve been meaning to try Bob Likes Thai Food for while especially due to the funky name. Yes I’m a sucker for cool names. The restaurant was empty except for us at 1pm on a Friday afternoon and no Bob in sight of course. Bob is suppose to represent the average Joe who likes Thai food. We were about to find out if we were going to be a bunch of Bob’s that day.

All lunches are $9!

My friend ordered a Thai Iced Tea and it was served in this tall skinny glass. I’ve never tried Thai Iced Tea before so this was my first time. It was really good! It was comparable to HK style milk tea but a lot sweeter. The lady who served us said that they don’t use condensed milk in their version which is what is traditionally used I believe.
