Benjarong is a Thai restaurant with a full menu, a full bar, and that guarantees you’ll leave with a full stomach once you’ve finished your meal. Even if you can’t go all the way to Thailand, you can make it to this Rockville restaurant to experience the culinary flavors of this vibrant country.
Stopping for lunch? Try the traditional hot and sour lemongrass soup with mushrooms and cilantro called Tohm Yum. Love salads? Try freshly shredded green papaya mixed with freshly squeezed lime juice, chili peppers, and topped with grilled shrimp, tomatoes, green beans, and peanuts.
Bring your appetite during the dinner hour for shrimp cooked and mixed with lemongrass, or for the deep-fried stuffed chicken with crab, mushrooms, spring onion, and more chicken. Wonton soup will warm you from the inside out, and to add a little spice to your night, order some curry — vegetable, tofu, beef, duck, chicken, and pork are available.
