Newtown Thai

There are heaps of Thai restaurants down King St, and a few who offer $6 lunch specials. Thai La Ong, Thai La Ong 2, Thai Times 9, Newtown Thai & Newtown Thai 2 to name a few.

There's only one that's worth mentioning today, and that's Newtown Thai -not Newtown Thai 2, but Newtown Thai (full stop). They make the best Pad See Ew I've ever had (yes, big call), and for $6, it's pretty unbeatable value.

Pad See Ew $6 (Lunch Special)
Wide, flat noodles stir fried in a sweet, brown sauce, with your choice of beef/chicken/pork/tofu. My husband chooses pork, I choose beef (to ensure that they don't just cook one big batch and divide it in two - quality control!).

One of the best things about this dish is that the green vegetables that come in this pad see ew are vibrantly green and deliciously crisp. I usually finish other noodle dishes with a small pile of the limp green veges on one side of the plate, but not with this noodle dish.

Also, it's served with a mystery black powder on the top. Is it a type of pepper? Don't know, but it sure makes it taste good.
