Lotus Asia’s Best Restaurant Review

: Enjoy third-generation Vietnamese family recipes at Lotus Asia’s Best, from the hearty pho broths that are simmered overnight to the just-crunchy-enough baguettes for the banh mi. Vietnamese cuisine is certainly the star, but other Asian fare works as well, such as Mongolian barbecue, Korean short ribs and clay pot chicken. Desserts are the usual green tea and mochi ice creams --- go for the refreshing mango. Beverage options include draft Kirin, Vietnamese iced coffee and house-made ginger ale. The small dining area can fill up quickly, especially on cooler days when patrons crave a bowl of the steaming pho.
