Decent Lunches - Vancouver
Mali Thai is a small place on Main at 15th which offers lunch specials in the $6-$7 range including the usual suspects - range of curries (including rice and salad) and some noodle dishes including pad thai. Nothing earth shattering but the curries are ok specially for the price - haven't tried the noodles.
Mandala Iki is on 4th across from the Safeway and offers a range of Chinois dishes for lunch; they run around $7-$8. Had the spicy Singapore noodles and Szechuan chicken with green beans - both tasty with a nice little kick. They offer brown rice with most of their specials which is nice change. http://brownricesushi.com/mandala/ind...
I am not saying either of these is anything more than decent value but I would appeciate hearing from others who have similar recommendations - never have too many reliable lunch places.
-Hawker's Delight on Main (Singapore/Malaysian and my favourite cheap eats in town)
-Phnom Penh (Cambodian-Vietnamese)
-Seri Malaysia (Hastings St)
-Pho at Le Do, Cuu Long, Song Huong, Pho Tai, My Chau...or pretty much any place
-Bahn Mi at Tung Hing
-Congee, Noodles are pretty much anywhere (eg Congee Noodle House, On Lok, etc.)
-Saravanaa Bhavan (South Indian buffet...very good and fresh)
-Prayag Raj (Gujarati)
