THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Semolina International Pasta Restaurant Restaurant Review

: As the name suggests, the menu emphasizes an international choice. Thus, diners will find selections from as nearby as Mexico and as far away as Thailand. Pasta dominates a good chunk of Semolina’s menu and each item is identified on the menu by country, sometimes stating the obvious (like tagging chicken enchilada pasta as Mexican or Malibu beach salad as American). There are a few unusual items, too, like Java pork chops (from, yes, Java) and pad Thai, a sweet and spicy stir-fry of shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, tofu and crushed peanuts with noodles and covered with fresh mung bean sprouts, carrot sticks and cilantro. In the mood for entertainment? All items are cooked on a stage that dominates the dining area.
