In busy South Bridge, Noodle ‘N’ Ice is a casual Thai eatery looking after students, tourists and hungry locals with steaming noodle dishes and a lot more besides. The laid-back venue features seating at long, adjacent tables and bench seating at first and main floor levels – perfect for larger groups as well as pairs of dining chums. The menu is divided between light bites and mains with food arriving as it’s ready from the kitchen, rather than in a strict order. Thai fishcakes hold a nice flavour of fish and shellfish, while crunchy sweet potato fritters are easily munched away. Their signature noodle n ice pad see ew is chicken and noodle comfort food, given a kick by ample crushed peanuts and chilli flakes. Pad kra pao, with veg, tofu, chicken, beef or king prawn is a bit less spicy than standard, but no doubt this could be adjusted when ordering. Pad prew wan combines seared chicken with sweet and sour pineapple in generous portions. Many flavours of S Luca’s ice cream await the clean plate club finalists.
