After reading HappyCow reviews, hubby and I rushed to eat at Lotus Pond.
Ppl mention its dingy but honestly we found it very clean, the staff was also very friendly and the service fast and efficient! We went at 5 for dinner on a Sunday and had the place to ourselves for most of the dinner!
We ordered a 3 item combo.
Tried both the wonton soup and hot and sour. Both delicious, the wonton itself was amazing-broth a lil weak but wonton made up for it. Hot and sour was packed with flavor and veggies and tofu and yumminess! Also comes with spring rolls which are so crunchy and good!!
We had the sweet and sour soya balls which were to die for. The plate was HUGE! Thick, pancake like batter- little bit sweet and very addicting. Best part is I didn't find them over fried, as a clean eater even a few French fries will give me belly aches but these gave only pleasure!
Also had the Bean Curd Skins in lemon sauce. Didn't even know what it was but so glad we ordered. Unique and very pleasurable dish, can't wait to explore more with that ingredient!
And we got way over zelest and got the Buddha delight. Giant plate of veggies and the like! Note- does have a bit of a fermenty- fungusy flavor for those who aren't sure! Great for the digestion however and the bok choy was like candy.
Anddd came with rice.
Lets just say that's enough food for like 4-6 ppl... The two of us brought home doggie bags.
Will most certainly be back again and again! And was so exciting to look at a menu and be able to use or eat everything!!
