Lemon Leaf

We usually stop at Lemon Leaf after an Ikea trip (it’s right down the street). The food is not bad — somewhat hit or miss — and the service is friendly but very slow. So today we learned the true secret: go to the Lemon Leaf Deli next door and order banh mi. My bbq pork was pretty good but E’s lemongrass beef was outstanding. And the bread was perfect banh mi bread: soft, with a little crust. I like crusty bread in general, but for banh mi, softer is usually better. And, as usual, at rock bottom banh mi prices ($2-3).
