I had been craving pad thai for so long that this hit the spot so sweetly 128523128525127860

I requested that they take out the shrimp (allergies) and my dear friend Sam was ok with it. 128536 we also got the chicken satai with peanut sauce and their Thai iced tea.

The company made the lunch so much better 9786️ #latepost #munchies

I absolutely love their pad thai! Super big fan I can finish the plate all by myself. 128514128521128523 the serving is huge. Good for 3-4 people!

This resto is like hidden and all and I bet really not a lot of people know about this place. Hidden gem, indeed.

They have good food. Good service and good wifi 9786

[Disclaimer: Late post.]

Ask me which mall I frequent the most and I’d always answer Shangri-La Plaza (before). And since I’m always the one organizing the mini reunions with friends, I always suggest having lunch or dinner at Shangri-La. So when some of my Dongguk friends and I met up for lunch, we decided to meet at… you guessed it.

I remembered that I haven’t tried the restaurant beside Dome so off to Lemongrass Asian Bistro we go. Actually, we were supposed to have lunch at Pho Hoa but we were too hungry to take another step.

T and I went first as E and D were still busy buying stuff for E’s trip to Palawan (which she found out that same day and that she’s off the following day).

T and I decided to order light dishes as we do not know what E and D were craving. We ended up ordering Thai Catfish Salad with Green Mangoes (PHP265) and Crispy Fish Fillet with Tamarind and Sweet Chili Sauce (PHP350). I also ordered a glass of Thai Iced Tea (PHP105) and Chilled Sago with Mango and Coconut Milk (PHP105) to complete my meal.

The salad arrived first and just like in other restaurants, the sauce, nuts, onions, and mangoes were all on the side. Since we were not sure if E and D are fond of the other ingredients, we just took enough to top our portions and opted not to toss the salad.

It was crunchy and it was a great contrast to the softness of the shredded green mangoes. I needed to put more sauce though as the catfish was really dry and it made my throat slightly itchy.

The fish fillet was served in a very cute way. It looked like mushrooms! It could pass for cocktail gatherings as you do not need utensils to eat it. It was nothing extraordinary but I loved that it was served freshly cooked.

While finishing our orders, we realized that we might need to order one more dish so we got Minced Chicken with Assorted Veggies (PHP350).

It was fun eating the minced chicken with veggies as it was like making your own spring roll. We stuffed the lettuce or rice wrapper with the minced chicken and crispy noodles. It was a bit messy to eat so we ended up eating the lettuce/rice wrapper and the minced chicken separately. After a few attempts, we decided that the best way is not to wrap it anymore. The chicken was flavorful, slightly sweet and the veggies balanced it. I like that the noodles and nuts gave more texture to the dish.

I was starting to feel full already so I had to ask for my dessert. *glutton mode*

It wasn’t anything special. But the mango used was sweet.

My drink had a strong tea taste so it wasn’t very sweet, just like how I like my Thai iced tea.

Overall, it was a great lunch. I’ll be back to try the other dishes.

[My new favorite mall now is Uptown because of its interesting restaurants.]

Bagoong Fried rice and Fried Spring Rolls. Both were okay. The bagoong rice was filling, although it could use a bit more pork toppings. We usually eat here when we want a no-frills simple Thai meal.

Happy to try Lemongrass for the longest time. Asked the staff to compare PHO noodles and she was knowlegeable and detailed. She even went back to the kitchen to show me a sample of the rice noodle. Nice! She recommended to try the beef stew pho and it was a hit!

PHO BO KHO (Beef Stew Noodle Soup) P275+SC

Broth was tasty, a little spicy, rich beef broth. Thick chunks of beef (oh yeah!), just enough rice noodles to fill my stomach. Finished everything plus the free garlic bread. First PHO that didn't dissapoint. 9786

Free in-store wifi, fast service, clean ambiance, accomodating staff, accepts credit card.

The place in Shangri-la is nice but small. The grilled chicken was a OK. But i loved the lemongrass drink.

I met with Cris R here last week and thought the food was ok. It was our first time here since we can't decide on where we should have lunch. I ordered this dish and she had their Binagoongan Rice and another spicy dish. Wish I ordered the same too as mine is salty. The place is nice. Not too many people hang around here and the servers are nice too.

This is the only restaurant that I can say "captured" that authentic Thai taste here in Manila.I just ordered the chicken barbecue but I tasted Bangkok. Having been to the city countless times already, I've developed love for Thai food and Lemon Grass passed my taste buds. I guess it must be the sauce they used...I'm not sure but I loved my Fridate here with my toddler. 128522

Lemon Grass in Shang has a cute little interior. It looks so refreshing even if it's near the elevators and people pass by the restaurant all the time, you'll get lost inside it. This is an asian restaurant and their food are really good! Maybe that affordable but the money is worth it. We ordered 2 viands and 1 noodle soup and all were really good! I love the pork riblets that we ordered. It's a must try!

I love the cozy and dainty look of this restaurant at the Edsa Shangri-La Plaza Mall, but the food we had last night was just.. Okay.

The chowmein was overflowing with eggs, shrimp and chicken meat and tasted really good.. It's just that the noodles were "too al dente" (if it's appropriate to use this word).. It actually reminded me of LITID.. It was so hard to chew and swallow!

Their california maki was okay.. though the rice they used was a bit dry. And for their Lemongrass minced curry chicken cakes.. Uhm.. aren't they supposed to have a curry-ish taste? They were just like the normal chicken nuggets you buy from the grocery.. Nothing extraordinary.

Overall.. The food was just - okay - but the pleasant service, nice and homey ambience and food presentation really adds value.

I like their hot and sour soup, catfish with mango salad, and fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce (Pho Hoa tops my list of yummy spring rolls). Healthy food but a bit pricey.
