Adventures in Portland: Take 7
Blossoming Lotus--Vegan Restaurant on NW 9th and Davis.
Annie is currently watching season 4 of Grey's Anatomy, and we need to make sure she finishes it before leaving for the glorious mid-west, so I am going to do some primary joint blogging right now.
This has turned into one of my signature locations that I take people to when them come to Portland. So, of course, I had to take Annie, and she found it as amazing as I do!! She responded just the way I needed her to. Blossoming Lotus is completely vegan, but don't let that scare you. Annie is pretty sure that her boyfriend Josh would even love this place!
Our favorite thing on the menu is the Thai peanut bowl with soy curls (you HAVE to get soy curls, they will change your life). On our second trip to Blossoming Lotus, Annie ordered a burrito that we shared as an appetizer so as to try something different on the menu, but still be able to have our peanut bowl. Don't you hate when you want to try new things, but you are worried they won't be as magical as the other thing you normally get? Its probably one of the harder things about life. That's why we decided to just order a crap load of food, look like gluttons, but eat a lot of super yummy vegan food.
1 bazillion scoops of icing for Blossoming Lotus!
