Best Thai With A Side Of Pineapple Fried Rice: Lemon Grass Thai

Best Thai With A Side Of Pineapple Fried Rice

There’s nothing quite like a restaurant staff knowing your name and order the second you walk in the door. And that’s exactly what you get at Lemon Grass Thai, a cozy, family-owned eatery nestled near Rookwood Pavilion. Their crispy meatless spring rolls are the perfect way to start off a meal before delving into entrées like Crab Crispies — crab, shrimp and cream cheese tucked inside a crunchy wrap — and yellow curry flavored with lemon grass, turmeric and coriander. Lemon Grass also has a ton of vegetarian options like stir-fried mixed vegetables and Swimming Angel With Tofu, deep-fried tofu squares on a bed of sautéed broccoli and spinach. No matter how much you end up ordering, make sure to top things off with a side of pineapple fried rice: You won’t be sorry. Lemon Grass Thai, 2666 Madison Road, Hyde Park, 513-321-2882,
