When you have the craving for Asian noodles, Thai food is sure to hit the spot. I had dinner plans with a friend in Annapolis and whining about the lack of noodles in my life. Fortunately, she knew where I could get my Thai fix and suggested Lemongrass because she was craving crispy string beans. Okay – I was sold.
When we were seated, we started with an order of the Crispy String Beans. The string beans were lightly battered and deep-fried then stir fried with chili, garlic, and five-spice. These were delicious! I liked that it was cooked into the sauce as opposed to dipping the string beans like French fries. I can see why my friend suggested ordering these.
My friend ordered Shrimp Pad Thai. The pad thai was very good, but it was the traditional dish, nothing particularly exemplary. But that’s a good thing, we were in the mood for basic noodle dishes after all.
I like when my food has a little kick, so I ordered the Chicken Drunken Noodles. The wide noodles were awesome and held onto most of the spicy flavor. The menu listed the dish as a ‘two chili spice level’ which was fine for me, but if you’re a spice addict, you may want to ask for them to turn up the heat.
