Zipping back into Cleveland Heights for a quick bite, we stopped by one of our favorite restie Lemon Grass.Gotta love the mix of people who dine here. College kids sitting next to college professors, suits enjoying dinner next to t-shirt and shorts, etc…
Started with a quick order of Stam Rolls which were perfectly G-B-D (Golden-Brown-Delicious).
Stam Rolls – $5.95
Although the 6 rolls were thin, we found them to be delicious! Delicious with a light drizzle of the sweet chili sauce.
Insides were perfectly cooked and texturally awesome.
Easy order rolls again #crunchamuncha
Our typical order of Pad Thai sounded like an easy winner.
Pad Thai: the most famous thai noodle dish rice noodles stir fried with chicken, shrimp, egg, ground peanuts bean sprouts, scallions and thai spices – $9.75
A bit heavy on the egg this time, but still delicious as always.
Wish they had more bean sprouts and green onions-thus providing more crunch and temperature differences. Fresh crisp and hot and spicy.
Easy order again too.
Since we’re heavy on the starches, we opted to try some fried rice (my death row meal).
House Fried Rice: Shrimp, chicken green peas, baby corn, red peppers, onion and tomatoes served with a cucumber and a wedge of lime – $11.50
I wasn’t quite sure about the cucumbers or the lime.
To me, the only “sour” taste that should reside in fried rice should come from fish sauce (if you even use it).
The char siu, green onions, etc…seemed to be cut by a blind guy.
Or maybe they just seem to like really rough chopping stuff.
Seemed like there should be more volume for $11.50 right? After all, it is the “house” version.
Well, maybe the chef lives in an expensive house.
We also ordered the special of the night, which was described as Drunken chicken noodles w/ vegetables – $10.95.
Don’t remember how much this was, but to us, it seemed like a pretty typical chow fun dish w/ veggies.
After finishing this dish, I wasn’t drunk either.
Though, I guess kinda Thai w/ the addition of basil.
Overall, pretty typical busy night here at Lemon Grass.
Crowd swelled during the classic 6p dinner hour and then subsided post dinner hour during our weeknight visit.
Service was standard and our waters got filled regularly.
Overall, a great restie to dine on a weeknight in Cleveland Heights.
Also stopping off at Big Fun before AND after dinner is awesome too.
