Lemongrass House, a popular Thai restaurant in Ibaraki, a residential area in Osaka.Originally it was a shop that was open in Nakazakicho near Umeda, but moved to Ibaraki City in 2016.Regarding food and drink, Ibaraki has a slightly more modest impression than the neighboring Takatsuki city, but I feel that the number of shops where customers gather is gradually increasing.
I visited the Lemongrass House at lunchtime on a certain Saturday ...
Lemongrass House | The popular Thai restaurant that moved from Nakazakicho to Ibaraki was a higher-class route than I expected.
The location of the shop was at the corner of an elongated triangle, and it was smaller than I expected.As for the audience seats, there are 6 counter seats and 1 small table seat that seems to have been forcibly installed in the back. It's a structure that makes you feel like "This was originally a small bar ...".
It's such a small shop, so I'm sure it will be full soon after it opens ... but surprisingly, there are vacant seats until the end.One of the reasons is takeout.Perhaps because the store moved from the city to a residential area, I got the impression that many people took it home and enjoyed Thai food at home.
The Lemongrass House has a large take-out menu, so if you live nearby, please use it.Even if you eat the same menu in the store, it will be reasonably priced (although there is a lot of volume), so to be honest, it is economically much more profitable to take out.
Pineapple fried rice: Curry-flavored Thai rice is unraveled in the mouth, and you can enjoy subtle changes in taste with abundant ingredients.
Now, let me introduce the pineapple fried rice (1500 yen including tax) that I ordered on this day.Click here for the image ...
Contrary to my expectations, it came out on a regular plate.When I confessed, I ordered this pineapple fried rice because I wanted to take a picture of "fried rice with hollowed out pineapple" that is sometimes introduced on TV.The photo burns to the beginning of the article!I wonder if you and other readers will be interested if you put it on.
But unfortunately the idea was fragile and crumbled.Let's regain our mind and go with the actual meal.
As you can see, the rice is colored yellow.Jasmine rice is coated with curry powder, and when you eat it, you can feel the stimulus of spices.Such curry-flavored fried rice may not have been experienced in Thai food that I have ever eaten.
Of course, Thai rice is used for the rice, and you can enjoy the crunchy texture that the rice unravels in your mouth.The volume is also solid, so even men may be fully satisfied with this dish.
The ingredients are a few large shrimp, dice-cut pineapples, raisins, paprika, carrots, nuts ... there are so many ingredients that the texture changes slightly with each bite and you won't get tired of eating until the end.The aroma of coriander is also subdued, much more complex than the typical fried rice image, with a carefully assembled taste.
The chef of a high-class restaurant cooked popular dishes that can be eaten at the town cafeteria, and the price is high ... But the taste is perfect, so if you want to eat delicious Thai food, you can choose Lemongrass House I think you can add it to one of them.
A little disappointing customer service ... Access to Lemongrass House is a 2-minute walk from the nearest station, JR Kyoto Line / Ibaraki Station.
With that kind of feeling, the Lemongrass House, which offers a slightly higher quality Thai food than expected, is a little disappointing to the customer service, as seen in many reviews.
To be honest, I also felt "I'm scared of this customer service ...", and I can't recommend this restaurant when you want to enjoy a meal with friends and acquaintances.However, if you understand that and want to eat delicious Thai food, Lemongrass House will surely meet your expectations.
