JM ate the pad thai with tofu.
Nichole ate the larp.
The bill was $14, or $7/person, plus tip.
JM gave Luangprabang an A-; Nichole gave Luangprabang an A (see our grading rubric).
It was a sunny, springlike Friday the week before UW's spring break, and warm enough for us to eat out on Library Mall. So we used some vacation time to take a mini-vacation and have a rare workday date - and Luangprabang turned out to be a great lunch.
We'd heard of the massive, $2.50 veggie spring rolls here (and had similar at Fresh Cool Drinks), but today we got entrees which still made for a thrifty lunch. JM really dug the pad thai - and though he has a cautious relationship to bean curd, he said the tofu in this preparation was really tops, and (again) he doesn't even really like tofu. Warm and fresh, it was worth the wait.
The larp was good enough to finish every bite - sliced instead of ground meat, lots of onions and spinach, hearty cucumber slices and generous scoops of sticky rice added up to a fine dish - but Nichole would probably try a different menu item next time. And with a baseline pad thai that good, and the promise of cheaply amazing spring rolls, there will be a next time for sure. Enjoy them while the weather is warm.
