Lemongrass, Thai restaurant in Hougang, is now MUIS halal-certified


If you feel like travelling the Land of Smiles without having to leave Singapore, this newly halal-certified eatery may make you feel like you’re in Bangkok.

Having received their halal certification recently, Lemongrass could be your next restaurant to visit for all the classic Thai dishes you’ve missed.

Lemograss’ facade and interior

If the white window murals depicting scenes from Thailand and brightly-lit neon “angel wings” sign are not eye-catching enough, check out the interior’s bright red colour scheme with wallpaper of busy Bangkok traffic.

Completing the look are the front ends of a tuk-tuk that were retrofitted as additional decorative elements in the space.

There are also diner-style booth seats at one corner of the shop, instantly giving the space a casual vibe where diners can show up however they like, even in flip-flops, and dine however they wish.

The restaurant serves your classic Thai cuisine such as tom yum soup, chicken basil, and pad thai.

Their Tom Yum Pasta (S$12.80) and Green Curry (S$8.80) are among their staples.

For communal dining, check out the Royal Platter (S$59.90) which comes with grilled ribeye, fried seabass and grilled chicken.

For something comforting on a chilly day, check out their Chicken or Fish Porridge (S$7.80) or a bowl of fiery Tom Yum Soup (S$9.80)

For something rice based, there’s always the familiar Pineapple Fried Rice (S$9.80) that includes a protein of your choice — prawns, chicken or beef.

You can’t forget the desserts at a Thai restaurant!

Here, you can find the classics — Mango Sticky Rice (S$6.80), Red Ruby (S$5.80), and Chendol (S$4.80). There’s even Waffles with Ice Cream (S$8.80) for the guest with a slightly more Western palate.

More surprisingly, however, is the selection of milk shakes in the drinks menu. The Classic Milkshake (S$5.80) comes in either Vanilla, Strawberry or Chocolate.

But why stick with basic when you can try the Coconut Shake (S$6.80) made with fresh copra (dried coconut kernels) or even the Peppermint Oreo Overload (S$8.80) which sounds like just the thing to cut through the spiciness of say, tom yum soup?
