KAON TA! means "Let's Eat!" in Hiligaynon

This blog does not give technical review
of restaurants we go to.

It merely chronicles the dining experience
of two Bacolenos working in Cebu -

Nyss who loves to write and

Geus who loves to take pictures.

Did we mention that we both love to eat?

Lemon Grass makes me love Thai Food more.  The mix of spices in their food is just right and anybody who has eaten there would agree.

FOOD:
We ordered the Suon Nuong (Grilled Pork), Curry Thalay (Red Seafood Curry), Bagoong Rice, and the Citrus and Herb Fresh Juice.

The Grilled Pork tasted good but it does not differ much from other restaurants' grilled pork.  But the vinegar sauce and the cucumber and monggo sprouts on the side made the dish more special.

The Red Seafood Curry is one of the most delicious curry dishes I have tasted.  It's spicy but not too spicy that you won't get too enjoy the flavor anymore.  They added pineapple which I think brought out the curry flavor more.

The Bagoong Rice was made of, well, bagoong and jasmine rice with a little bit of chorizo and bits of vegetables.  The smell was so inviting that I heard my stomach rumbling the moment they placed the dish on the table.

The Citrus and Herb Fresh Juice is a must-try in this restaurant.  It's just the right mix of Cucumber, Lemon, and Herbs.

AMBIENCE/SERVICE:
The ambience was nice.  The decors are mostly in color green so it's easy on the eye.  They play soothing Vietnamese music.

The service was prompt.  The waiters are friendly and courteous.

PRICE:
For the dishes we've ordered, we paid Php 650.00.  There were 3 of us so it's at least Php 200.00 per person which is not bad considering that it was a good meal.

VERDICT:
Nyss - I'll definitely come back.
Geus - the place was nice, the food was great!
