Lemongrass is the brainchild of a couple that has come together from opposite ends of the globe. Alan Hoang moved from Vietnam to Maine when he was 15, and Gillian Watt traveled from Scotland to the Midwest. They met in Maine, fell in love, and had their daughter Fiona. Having achieved a happy family, Alan sought to enact his dream: opening a Vietnamese restaurant. After snagging time-tested recipes from his mom and older sister, he started Lemongrass in May 2012.
Lemongrass’s menu evokes the flavors of traditional Vietnam with homemade pho, vermicelli noodles, and vietnamese crepes, which are made with rice flour and mung beans and served with a choice of fillings, mint, and nuoc mam. Entrees experiment with uncommon flavors, mixing pork, chicken, shrimp, or beef with crispy vegetables and coating it all under a fine layer of lemon, sweet-and-sour, or coconut-peanut sauces.
