Inexpensive Thai Food
Thai Me Up - formerly Thai on Carson - is a simple cafe-style Thai restaurant in the South Side.
No fake meat here, but several tofu dishes, which seem to be more popular than the meat dishes.
Pretty straight-forward, inexpensive food - you'll find the standard Thai noodle and rice dishes here.

I've only been there 3 times or so- and I have ordered the Pad Thai every time. But it is delicious. Some of the best I've ever had. The Thai iced tea here is very good too (not too sweet). Very good. Highly recommended.
Very nice sized portions for the money. I like the Basil Leaves with Tofu the best - a great, filling, simple dish with a kick. The service is usually very fast, too - the food comes out remarkably fast.
Once - and only once - they had soy milk which they would substitute for regular in the Thai iced tea (although you can always get it without milk). They told me the owner drinks the soy milk, which is why they happened to have it but don't usually serve it. Maybe if people keep asking they'll start stocking the soy milk consistently.
The staff have always been accommodating for me (I usually ask for little or no bell peppers in my basil tofu), but a friend told me once she asked to be sure that there was no fish sauce in a dish and was told they didn't have time to go through that right then and asked her to leave!

Right on Carson, between 19th and 20th Street. The 54C, 51A, 51G, 51D, and 51E all go right by it. The 51C can drop you off at the corner of 18th and Carson, just a block and a half away.
Look for a small blue awning.
