If you can’t bear the thought of sitting at a restaurant packed with hot moms and remote tech workers for lunch, go to Thai Sidewalk instead. This street cart makes solid food, and you’ll probably spend around $15 for lunch. The real power move, though, is to get the lobster roll, which only costs $20, is quite literally overflowing with huge chunks of lobster meat, and is lightly dressed with a peppery mayo that makes us wish all lobster rolls had this much flavor. Apart from that, our favorites here are the pad see ew and the curry puffs, but you can’t really go wrong. Walk a block or so to Pebble Beach and have your Thai takeout with a view. It beats a sad desk salad any day of the week.
