We visited Lemon Grass Restaurant yesterday on the way to an office mate’s house party for a quick bite of food while they were still out of their apartment. This restaurant offers a curious twist of vietnamese and thai cuisine that’s definitely a fresh way to view things when you’re tired of the repetitive japanese, chinese or korean meals you’d get if you’re hungry and craving for something Asian.
The place had great ambiance and overall presentation, in fact it was so good that it felt like it was nothing when we were waiting for that one last order to arrive. For starters, we had a pitcher their special cold brew with slices of oranges, lemons, mint and basil. For appetizers, we had fresh vegetable and vermicelli rolls topped with their sweet peanut sauce. It was very refreshing and delectable, light too. For the main meal, we had pad thai noodles and grilled Vietnamese chicken. Their pad thai noodles were thick and the sauce is sweet unlike that of the traditional way of preparing pad thai. The grilled chicken tasted delicious and it goes well with the pickled cucumber siding. I suppose they’re fond of using cucumber for their meals and sidings. Something I didn’t mind at all. Apparently, we had to wait for 30-40 minutes for the grilled chicken to arrive, but it was totally worth it, and we were quite satisfied with it.
