When I saw that a new restaurant had opened in Apple Valley, I got a bit geeked out. I came across a takeout menu in a store and started highlighting all the things we'd likely eat, a habit of mine when it comes to new restaurants. I was so excited that I decided we had to try it that night.
Spoon, a Vietnamese restaurant, is a great fit for our takeout needs. The first time we ordered from there, we were awed by the Lemongrass Tofu. The tofu had a nice texture and the lemongrass sauce was refreshingly fragrant. I only wish I had taken a picture!
I also ordered taro bubble tea, which was made to order. I have a feeling I might be stopping for dessert more often.
The second time ordering from Spoon proved to be a tad less awesome. We tried an order of orange chicken and while good, the accompanying vegetables looked a little drab.
The tofu lo mein was insanely greasy. You can't see it in this picture, but there was a puddle of grease under the noodles. Bummer!
Two slightly underwhelming dishes isn't enough to make me swear off the place. I'm still eager to go back and get more melt-in-your-mouth wontons and try the Singapore Noodles or maybe some dim sum on the weekend.
