This summer I’m working in Covington, so I often go somewhere in the area for lunch. Last week I visited one of my Covington favorites, Amerasia. The restaurant is super tiny. I think it only seats 40-50 people, so if you visit during a busy time be prepared to wait or order to-go. One of Amerasia’s best features is their super cheap lunch menu. I’m talking lunch specials for $5-6.

It doesn’t take like it’s been sitting around all day. There’s a strong flavor of fresh ginger, and crushed red pepper that will make you rethink ordering Chinese when you stroll through the mall.

Check out the full Amerasia menu below. I’m also a fan of the Pad Thai.
