No. 7: Bubble Me's Rama Tofu
The new, Lake Street Sawatdee spin-off, Bubble Me, is a laid-back spot for young Uptownians to drop in for some cheap Southeast Asian food paired with coffee or a bubble tea. Our favorite dish, available in the shop or for takeout, is the Rama Tofu: the chewy fried tofu puffs are coated in a slightly sweet/spicy course-ground peanut sauce with a few leaves of melty cooked spinach. It's a textural treat with a blast of vegetarian protein, and, served with plain or sticky rice, only $6.95 a pop.
