Lemongrass Thai Exterior

 

Lemongrass Cuisine of Thailand is a great place to find something deliciously vegan in Jacksonville, Florida. The restaurant was easy to get to, reasonably quiet and had great options. The wait staff was courteous and friendly while taking care of our needs. The restaurant is located on Old Bay Meadows Road on the south side of Jacksonville. It has been in this area for quite a while and seems to do pretty well. Most of the entrées had tofu choices as a replacement for the carniverous options.

I started with a tofu points appetizer and peanut sauce. The peanut sauce was tasty and slightly spicy.

 

Papaya Salad

For my next course I ordered the papaya salad. This salad contains shredded fresh green papaya, thai chili peppers, whole peanuts, cherry tomatoes, garlic, lime juice and a touch of fish sauce. I ordered the salad without the fish sauce. The taste was great and everyone at the table got a chance to try it.

 

Spicy Drunken Noodles

For the main course I ordered spicy drunken noodles with tofu. This dish included wok tossed rice noodles, garlic, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, fresh mushrooms, cashews, scallions, srriachi and Thai sweet basil. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy Thai food?

 

My dinner companions ordered a dish called The Amazing which can be ordered with shrimp, chicken, beef, pork or tofu. The dish includes their famous peanut curry sauce over spinach and broccoli.
