Beef Sate skewers from Lemongrass West restaurant in SW Calgary

Lemongrass West isn’t too far from me, but the first time I visited for a bowl of Pho, I was pretty disappointed. It took a friend’s rave review to bring me back again.

Lemongrass West serves Vietnamese cuisine, including baguettes, vermicelli, and pho. They also have a HUGE menu full of gluten-free dishes which is pretty cool to see – although I myself am not gluten intolerant.

On my last visit I had the Appetizer Platter (shared with my companion) which includes 2 Salad Rolls, 2 Crispy Spring Rolls, 2 Beef Sate Skewers. I anticipated liking the spring rolls best, and the beef skewers least… but it ended up being the other way around.

  • The salad rolls were as expected – though I missed the sweet chili sauce that I’m more accustomed to when enjoying them.
  • The beef sate skewers had a great flavour – though I did have to scrape the onions off! They were easy to eat and tasty.
  • The crispy spring rolls unfortunately seemed overcooked, too chewy, and were lacking flavour. The accompanying sauces weren’t the right fit either I think.
