Rachel Rates It


This week I'm rating Gingergrass, a charming little restaurant located in Glendale/Silverlake.
My boyfriend first took me there and this is how I discovered the trendy little spot.  
Only having gone a handful of times now, I feel that I am capable of giving you some insight about the place. It has a minamilast decor, which I enjoy. Because I'm always cold, I always sit inside, but they do have a lovely outdoor sidewalk terrace as well. The daily specials are written on a large chalkboard hung above the cashier/ kitchen area. It's a cozy little spot.. you almost feel like you've stumbled upon a secret treasure. 
As for the food, it's more fusion vietnamese rather than traditional vietnamese. I personally enjoyed the Pho, the Wok tossed noodles and Wok tossed lemongrass chicken. I also tried the grilled shrimp skewers and although they were tasty, the portion size was very small. The seasonal grilled vegetable rolls were interesting, but I wouldn't order it again. This last time I went I tried a daily special, the molasses brussel sprouts, and I did not like them. They were undercooked and the molasses brought out the bitterness of the vegetable. One thing I absolutely love there are the shrimp chips! They are a perfect starter and are made perfectly. The crunchy little chip reminds me of my childhood and this is perhaps why I enjoy them so much :P
The service is good, the food is quick, tastes great and the environment is clean and comfortable.
Overall, I give the place a thumbs up. Check it out and let me know what you thought and what you enjoyed so perhaps the next time I may try your suggestions! XO
