White Lotus restaurant revisited

This image is from "lotusbrooklyn@wordpress.com The lotus is a beautiful flower, and blooms from the mud a great inspiration....there is nothing muddy about the White Lotus veg restaurant though. Scrumptious food and charmingly warm service again. The "shredded pork" salad rolls, Lemon chicken - heavenly (#13) and #32 the Beef Stew were all divine - I am glad I have leftovers of the stew too..my dining partner and I wolfed them down after a walk from the Home Show - boring except for a complimentary glass of wine. Don't get me started on the decor in the "Dream Home"...in the first two rooms....ghastly! I guess the new movement is excessive and tacky? Go figure...I am a minimalist myself....love the clean lines... Back to the food - please vegetarians go and support this place - 303 Landsdowne Avenue - conveniently located between Dundas or College Streetcar routes...I am planning on going back very soon. They even had what looks like a kumquat tree decorated with lucky money envelopes...Chinese New Year.... Thanks again to Dan, Lee and Kieran for a great evening at Azure - go check it out jazz fans - Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5:30 - 10:30, Intercontinental Hotel on Front Street. Decadent desserts, extensive drink list, great frites...I should speak to them about another veg option on the menu....thanks to the staff as well. I hope to blog about it on the Jazz FM website...we shall see. I even have pics..if not they will end up here.... Tonight - going to make Ani Phyo's "Baja Taco Filling" and putting it lettuce leaves, Kristen's "Cheezy Hemp Nacho Sauce" - scrumptious - some corn, tomatoes...mmmm...
