Riverfront Times's Description
Lemongrass has an attractive new home - check out the silhouettes of lemongrass stalks projected on the walls - but it remains one of the best values along South Grand. Its cafe sua da (iced coffee) is without doubt the strongest and sweetest. The lengthy menu offers the familiar (spring rolls and pho), the hearty (try com thit nuong dac biet, delicious char-grilled pork and an egg fried over-easy atop rice, with a quiche-like eggcake on the side) and even the Chinese (ga Tso's -- yes, General Tso's chicken). Best of all, you can get a generous portion of almost anything on the menu for less than $10.
Tips from foursquare
Sesame Tofu is the key vegetarian thing to get here. Enjoy!
Curry anything is awesome!
I don't know what witchcraft they perform to make the sesame tofu so good, but it's worth it.
Seasame Tofu will be my last meal if I am ever on Death Row!
Sesame Tofu is the most bomb thing ever. I dream of it sometimes.
