Stir Crazy at the Palisades Center


After Avatar this weekend, my friends and I stopped in to Stir Crazy for lunch. You know what? Not half bad. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go to the mall just to go to the restaurant, but if you’re there and you’re hungry, it’s a perfectly acceptable meal.


I definitely recommend getting the dishes cooked from the menu rather than the stir-fry stuff you choose and they cook in front of you.

The portions, like many around here, are humongous. All of these plates are appetizers. Chicken satay:


“Crazy” shrimp, which has a sweet and sour sauce and comes with a very nice cabbage salad:


Fried calamari:


Chicken lettuce wraps:


Vegetarian lettuce wraps:


Seared tuna with sesame and a salad with shiitake mushrooms:


Fried wontons:


Yeah, like I said: nothing to run home to the wife and kids about, but if you’re hungry, not bad. I know that doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement, but for mall food, it’s a thumbs up.
