Dirt Cheap Eats 2009: Thai Flavor

The tiny dining room accommodates only 14, but the thoughtful owners provide free delivery and curbside pickup. Appetizers are a weak spot, except for the fresh summer rolls ($4.95) of shrimp, vegetables, and vermicelli wrapped in rice paper.

Seafood pad see eaw ($8.95)—stir-fried noodles with mussels, shrimp, and tender calamari—and spicy green-curry chicken ($8.95) with crunchy vegetables are also rewarding. Pad Thai ($8.95), thank goodness, is not too sweet, but the rock star here is drunken noodles with shrimp ($10.45), a perfect balance of spicy, sweet, salty, and sour.

Open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner.
