My friend Aaron texted me this picture on Monday of his lunch: pad Thai from Bangkok Chef in Manoa. The dish consists of fried rice-noodles with egg, chicken, tofu, bean sprouts and chives, all doused with “house pad Thai sauce.” He added some hot sauce. For all that food, it costs about $8! Bangkok Chef is one of the best places to pick up lunch due to the obvious value, and the quality is great as well. Everything I’ve had from their varied menu is delicious. They’re also fast, so it’s great for take-out but you can also sit down and eat in the small, no-frills dining room.
Open: Monday – Saturday 10:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., Sunday noon – 8:00 p.m.
