Your favorite inexpensive, spicy meals?

butterfat | Dec 28, 2008 06:12 AM

I'm expecting my first baby any day now (or in a few weeks, who knows?), and since I'm not feeling much like cooking, and this feels like our last chance to dine out for a while, DH and I have been going out for lunch the last few days and will probably continue to until the baby arrives. The problem is that we normally prefer to cook at home, so we're fairly clueless about restaurants beyond our immediate neighborhood.

I'm hoping you all can share some of your favorite inexpensive spicy meals as inspiration for us. (The inexpensive part is because this baby is already stretching our budget. The spicy part is to help induce labor, plus it just seems to be what I'm craving.)

In an ideal world, we'd like to find places that are easily driveable from Cambridge, and that are pleasant and comfortable places to sit without being fancy since I'm not much into dressing up these days. No real dietary restrictions except the pregnancy-related ones (no sushi, deli meats, etc.)

Yesterday I enjoyed a spicy noodle soup at Wagamama but I know we can do better with your help. Thanks in advance hounds!
