Mmmmm Vietamese food. I love the fresh veggies, spring rolls, pho, and minty/citrusy goodness. I guess there are other sides to this culinary world, and Gingergrass delivers.

It's an interesting, unfinished looking space with no frills, but I like it. Loud as all get-out on a busy weekday afternoon, but I don't mind - the hearing is totally shot. Yet.

Service was consistent and non-evasive - great for a lunchtime buzz, as everyone seemed rushed. I loved the very fresh and yummy sounding menu, loaded with unique ingredients (Asian jackfruit, pickled veggies, etc.) and all priced super duper reasonably.

My hat's off to the uniqueness, and to the inexpensive dishes here. I was not at all impressed with the spring rolls (which I was gleeful about ordering) or the vibrant flavors. But I would absolutely return, for another go-round, minus the rolls.
