$20.12 meal for Two

The Buffalo / Western New York restaurateurs have, for several years now, had two weeks per year of "special" menus and prices. This happens in the spring and the fall.

Thia year, those who participated, offered a meal for $20. 12. (last year it was $20.11 and the year my brother and sister-in-law were here it was $20.10.

When Lee and Cindy were here, the restaurant offered two meals for $20.10 since their items are not extremely expensive.

Today the husband and I went to Yummy Thai. Here is what they were offering:

We went for lunch. We had the house soup . . . a chicken broth based soup with scallions and rice . . . hot and filling.

Even though it says "or" appetizer, it was part of the meal, Glad we passed on it. We were full when we left without it . . AND, they took it off our final bill.

My Lunch Special was Chicken Pud Thai. . . Sautéed Thai thin rice noodles with eggs, bean sprout, scallions and crushed peanuts

The husband had the luncheon sized Chicken Street Noodles. . . Sautéed flat wide rice noodles in light homemade sauce with green onion, onion, bok choy, egg and ground peanuts.

Oh, we also had a spring roll with the entree . . . last time we were there this was not included . . . wonder if that is because the dinner meal has more in a serving? Who knows.

I just think this is the neatest way to get people in . . . the cost of the meal is the same as the year . . . and the food is great!


  1. Oh my word, you're making me HUNGRY!! (0; Just wanted to let you know that I updated my post to share how I made my earrings. Really it's just as if you were starting a basic doily, just making those doily like spaces for a doily effect. You could in face use any snowflake pattern too, I imagine... A nice idea for Christmas! Anyways, I did the directions in a very quick and informal manner, but I hope it helps. Let me know if I've written something wrong, or if you have any question at all. Have a good night, and a great weekend! ((hugs)) ~tina
