Location: SW 4th and Hall Parking Lot (near PSU)
Description: “Special Variety Better Choice” or so says the menu at Thai Pasta, located at the popular “PSU Cart Pod” on SW 4th. Not much pasta here, but some noodle dishes like the ubiquitous (but tasty) pad thai, hearty Pad Kee Mao noodles (also known as drunken noodles), and the stir fried wide rice noodles called Pad See Ew. ($5.00).
Thai soups like Tom Yum, Tom Kai, and a soothing vegetable soup are only $3.00 for a generous “small” portions, $5.00 for a large carton that can easily feed two.
Other options include curries, fried rice dishes, and several aromatic stir fries such as the “Lovely Ginger” or a nice version of Cashew Chicken (which can also be ordered with tofu instead). Appetizers include satay chicken skewers with peanut sauce ($1.50 each), spring rolls ($1.00 each), salad rolls (2 for $3.00), or something called, “Oh My God” ( I have no idea what exactly it is – something fried with cream cheese and crab and served with plum sauce). Thai iced tea or coffee is only $1.50.
Everything on the menu is $5.00 or less. Open until 5PM. Lots of vegetarian options.
