Friday Favourites: Pan Fried Chicken with Lemon grass

Sometimes all you want is tasty meat, noodles or rice and maybe some broth. No fuss, no show, no silly prices.

The Pan Fried Chicken with Lemon grass at Hansan Vietnamese restaurant comes on its own ($9), or with rice, vermicelli, rice noodle soup or egg noodle soup. For $10.50 it’s a delicious bargain.

All mains at Hansan are around $10. Also try their summer rolls ($5) and spring rolls ($4.50). Come here for a healthy, quick, cheap meal.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. Sara says

    The Lemongrass Chicken is my absolute fav!! I miss that place. Managed to recreate something that was pretty close a few weeks ago 🙂

    • Hi Sara! That’s cool that you know the place. It’s one of those places that people don’t really rave about. Maybe because it’s not “cool”? I haven’t thought to recreate this dish athome yet. Maybe I will now. Did you find a recipe online?

  2. Yea I just found a couple on epicurious or something – let me now if you want the link! I like the lemongrass ones that use tumeric rather than curry powder (not much of a fan of curry powder). You kind of caramelize the sugar and onions first to make it sticky and yummy!

  3. I shall do some hunting Sara. Do you use fresh lemongrass? I bought some in a jar once but it went mouldy really quickly.

  4. Fresh lemongrass for sure! I used to get it from a thai food store in NZ. Lemongrass makes an amazing sorbet too.
