Blossoming Lotus is located on bustling King Street in Newtown. The Lotus is renowned for its delicious vegan meals. But don't worry, this isn't one of those overpriced hippy joints where you have to wait ages for the food. In fact, the food is so tasty, even hardcore meat lovers will be pleasantly surprised. Head to the buffet where you get a large plate of three choices with rice for only $10. For brown rice, add $1. You will probably struggle to choose only three, as they are all tempting. You can get takeaway but it is fun to eat in. The place is very casual, almost like you are eating at home. This is definitely a shirt and jeans type outing. It's really all about the food.
The crispy soy (pictured) are a must try. They are sticky and sweet, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. They also make a delicious chilli, basil and eggplant curry as well as a pumpkin, tofu curry that melts in your mouth. If you are in the mood for something light snap up some of their fresh rice paper rolls. They're packed with mint and veggies, plus they come with a sweet chilli dipping sauce. If you are hungry, go for the veggie duck, it's super filling and has a strong meaty flavour. This place really is value for money.
