Boston Restaurant Blog -- May, 2007
Monday, May 7, 2007
I don't know why, but for some reason, I haven't had much Thai food in 2007. I love all kinds of Thai cuisine, but until we went to Sweet Lemons in Weymouth a few weeks ago, it had been a long time since I enjoyed a good meal at a decent Thai restaurant. The wait was worth it, though, as Sweet Lemons proved to be an excellent place, and one that may end up being featured on Boston's Hidden Restaurants if it continues to impress.
Sweet Lemons doesn't look like much from the outside, as it is a small dining spot in a nondescript shopping center on one of the busiest streets in Weymouth (it is very easy to miss). But the inside of the restaurant is rather pleasant, with comfortable seating and a quiet, peaceful feel to the place. The restaurant was fairly busy, though not excessively so, even though it was a Saturday night.
We started with a couple of delicious soups--the Tom Yum soup, has mouthwatering mushrooms, chicken, and veggies in a broth that had a slight burn to it, and the chicken rice soup was fresh, light, and tasty. Then we moved on to an interesting appetizer called chicken puffs, which had ground chicken and curry sauce, and cucumber sauce on the side. They were delectable; I could have easily made a meal out of them. The main entrees we ordered were a bit of a mix, as the spicy, full-flavored basil fried rice was one of the best I've had anywhere, while the chicken with wide noodles and Chinese broccoli in brown gravy was a bit too heavy for me.
Sweet Lemons turned out to be a great choice for Thai food. I want to try it again soon, since there were some other items on the menu that looked interesting, such as the Thai noodle soup and the stir-fried glass noodles with shrimp, chicken, and vegetables. As soon as I try Sweet Lemons again, I'll report back on it to let folks know whether it was as good as the first time I went.
If you would like the address for Sweet Lemons, here it is: Sweet Lemons 1, 828 Washington Street, Weymouth, MA 02189. The phone number is (781) 340-5551. Note that there is also a Sweet Lemons 2 on Main Street in Weymouth.
You should try Bangna Garden in Kingston center. Tiny tiny place but fantastic!
