Respond to Review of Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant
Review: In a strip mall off a busy, nondescript road bisecting a heavily Vietnamese neighborhood was the last place I expected to find tasty vegetarian fare. Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant is quite the find! You would never know you were sitting in a former Pizza Hut based on the food (the layout, on the other hand ... dead giveaway!) In fact, I wish MORE Pizza Huts would convert to selling food like this. We over-ordered outrageously in order to sample as much as possible between two people. Summer rolls were a standout, dipped in some kind of addictive sauce that I kept licking off my fingers. The rest is just a blur. This would just be "average ethnic vegetarian" food back home (I am lucky enough to live in NYC, vegan mecca that it is) but in St. Petersburg, Lotus offers a spicy, delicious alternative, served by a lovely staff. In a Pizza Hut. Quite the experience!
