Vila Thai Cuisine
972 E. University Blvd., 903-9777, www.vilathai.com
Yum! Foodies in Tucson are elated by the opening of Vila Thai, at Main Gate Square near the University. The dishes are fresh, authentic and downright delicious. But it's the lunch special that has people talking. For $8, you get a choice of main dish--the basil beef is sensational--plus rice (brown or white) and pad thai. There are plenty of vegetarian options for those who forgo flesh.
