Wedge Salad

Last time I wrote about a wedge salad was probably the last time I had one.  
We watched some cooking show a while back that was at a restaurant that served them, 
and I knew it was time again.

Last time I went pretty basic, just tomato and chives with dressing.  
This time we added bacon and croutons - so delicious!

If you wanted to continue on the decadent path, crispy onions and avocado would be amazing.
I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that at the time.

Kamloops Community Gardens

The Boy and I got a chance to peek in the Community Garden down on River Street.

The plants were amazing!
Gigantic tomatoes, beautiful chard.
Gorgeous peppers and corn.

There's a new garden this year down in Riverside Park, but I haven't had a chance to visit yet.

Lemongrass Restaurant

Finally, FINALLY, the day has come - Kamloops finally, seriously, FINALLY!!!!!!! has a Vietnamese restaurant. 
I truly didn't think it would ever happen. 

Lemongrass opened last month in the newish building on Summit Drive next to the firehall - 
1211 Summit Drive, to be exact.

 We stopped by for lunch earlier this month. I was beyond excited. 
 The decor is very nice - lots of light, wood, and greenery.

The grownups started with Vietnamese Iced Coffee.  

Normally you get the coffee filter dripping the hot coffee into a cup with condensed milk, and a glass with ice on the side for when it's finished brewing.  
Then you stir the coffee and milk together, and pour over the ice.  
Here they do all the work for you.  And the glasses are super cool.

Bun Cha is my very favorite Vietnamese dish - grilled meat and noodles.  
At Lemongrass they have some great options.  

The Mister got the 2 Skewers and 1 Spring Roll  - with the grilled pork.

I went with the One Skewer and 2 Spring Rolls  - with the grilled chicken.  
I also got rice instead of noodles.

The Boy was unsure about what to have, so we got him some tempura, 
and he picked at our plates as well.  
Everything was delicious.  The meats were nicely grilled and flavorful, and the spring rolls were crispy and soooo good.  

Service was a bit spotty.  Our server abandoned us shortly after taking our order - so we relied on whoever we could flag down for water, extra napkins, and sauces.  

I can't wait to go back.  I'll have the Bun a couple more times, then move on to the Pho.  
I've heard good things.
