Cheap - Good - Tonight

Headed to Strange Brew tonight for a 10pm show. Any recommendations on Cheap - Good restaurant relatively near by. Maybe Thai?

Thanks!

Great recommendation - already done it. :)

I didn't warn you of the "can't already have eaten there criteria" did I?

May be doing Sagra.

I guess you've figured out there's not much "near" Strange Brew -- except maybe a few small (neighborhood) taquerias or asian food places -- and I don't have any direct experience. I will say the Bakehouse (almost next door) is very mediocre. Did you look at Tuk Tuk (Thai) on yelp?

I did look at Tuk Tuk. We ended up with more time than I expected so we went to Sarga. I was a little disappointed. The food sounded good on the menu, but it really wasn't balanced. I got bites that were too salty, too acidic (strong tomato,) too much of one ingredient. Price was not cheap but reasonable for what we ordered.

I'm sad to hear that about Sagra. It was one of my favorite restaurants in town when it was on San Antonio St., but I haven't been since it moved to the east side.

The potential is there, just off a little.
